    Dogs from Florida now available for adoption Some of the dogs transferred to San Diego from shelters in Florida are ready to find loving homes. On Oct. 18, 93 dogs were flown to San Diego to create space at shelters in the Florida Panhandle for animals who have been displaced by Hurricane Michael. The Florida dogs are available for adoption at San Diego Humane Society’s San Diego Campus (5500 Gaines St.). These pets are not direct victims of Hurricane Michael. They are dogs who were transported to San Diego to create room for pets who have been lost, strayed or abandoned due to the hurricane. These pets do not have owners who will be searching for them when the conditions improve. All of the dogs will be spayed/neutered, current on vaccinations and microchipped. The available dogs can be found at sdhumane.org/pet and can be identified by the tag “#hm.” Adoptions are on a first-come, first-served basis.

He will also discuss how the crash’s aftermath contributed to major changes in modern commercial air travel safety rules and procedures; and he will invite attendees to share their memories of that horrific day. For the past 30 years Alexander Bevil has played an active role in identifying and preserving several San Diego historic landmarks.

College District receives funds for Dreamer Resource Centers The San Diego Community College District has received a $336,000 grant to create and expand programs at its three colleges to support undocumented students and their families so that more people will be able to realize their full potential. San Diego City, Mesa, and Miramar colleges are among 32 campuses throughout California that will receive support this academic year from the new California Campus Catalyst Fund. To date, the Catalyst Fund has raised nearly $10 million for this three-year initiative, which was founded by educators, funders and advocates. The fund increases support for undocumented students and their families on campuses representing the state’s three public higher education systems: California Community Colleges, California State University, and the University of California. “When undocumented young people are able to pursue education and careers, they can create new, brighter futures for themselves, their families, and their communities,” said Lynn Neault. “As educators, we are not satisfied with only some people doing well. Everyone should have the support, resources, and environment they need to realize their full potential.” Fall Fest at Belmont Park Belmont Park’s Fall Fest continues during November, Fridays through Sundays, 5 p.m. to close. In the spirit of giving, Belmont Park has partnered with the San Diego Food Bank by hosting a free-ride food drive with a donation of five canned food items Fridays through Sundays, 5 p.m. to close. On Saturday nights in November, guests (18 and older) may sign up to compete in free pie eating contests to win a family four-pack of combo wristbands. Free entertainment will also be offered on select dates. The park will hold a military and veterans’ weekend 5 p.m. to close November 9-12, including all day on Nov. 12. Wristbands will be half off for veterans, military and dependents with valid I.D. On Monday, Nov. 12 at Beach House, veterans can enjoy a free burger and beer with I.D. I Love A Clean San Diego hires new executive director I Love A Clean San Diego (ILACSD) recently announced the hire of Rear Admiral Leendert (Len) Hering Sr. USN, (retired) as the organization’s new executive director.

    Ladera Street stairs re-open at Sunset Cliffs after City repairs bluff

    Emergency bluff repairs next to the Ladera Street stairs in Sunset Cliffs is finished. Work was done quickly – and under budget. “The emergency cliff stabilization work at Ladera Street has been completed,” said Alec Phillipp, City public information officer. “The construction work took less than one week.” Added Phillipp, “[The City] estimates that the construction cost will be less than our initial $1.5 million estimate.” Phillipp said the repair project was triggered when portions of the bluff collapsed onto the stairs below in February. Cliff reconstruction work was focused on mitigating the geologic hazard adjacent to the stairs to increase public safety and ensure beach access by emergency personnel.  “A geotechnical consultant was on site throughout the project to ensure that the stability of the bluff wasn’t further compromised by our work,” said Phillipp, adding, “The contractor will be paid for the time and materials used to complete the work.” On Aug. 6, the City Council allocated $1.8 million in Regional Park Improvement Funds for the Ladera Street Beach Access Stairway Emergency Project. That stairway had been closed and chained-off since a Feb. 13 cliff landslide impaired beach access below. The City’s decision to declare the project an “emergency,” which fast-tracked repairs, didn’t sit well initially with some nearby Sunset Cliffs neighbors who felt the community had been “left out” of the decision making loop. Some argued the project should have been required to have a full-blown environmental impact report done prior to construction. But at least some detractors were won over by the City’s effective implementation of the project. “The Sunset Cliffs Natural Park Council is pleased that the project was down sized and impressed by the careful, professional work on this sensitive project,” said council spokesperson Ann Swanson. “Overall we are delighted with the response of the Coastal Commission that ensured that an environmentally sound minimal project was completed,” said Sunset Cliffs neighbor Dedi Ridenour.

    Point Loma residents were treated to some close-up looks at one of the famed Blue Angels planes last week as cameras rolled for a new feature film. Filming has generated significant local buzz because of its star: Tom Cruise. The 56-year-old leading man has been spotted riding a motorcycle around Coronado as various locations have been selected by Paramount and Skydance Pictures for a sequel to the popular "Top Gun." The original film grossed $350 million and starred Cruise as Naval aviator Lt. Pete Mitchell. The film was selected by the Library of Congress as one of the 25 annual films of 1986 that are "culturally, historically or aesthetically" significant. While Cruise was not present, some Peninsula residents learned earlier in the day of the planned appearance of a Blue Angels aircraft over the area. Just minutes past 5 p.m. on Oct. 31, filming began along the road to Cabrillo National Monument with a full half-mile of equipment trucks and buses parked in front of Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery. A Blue Angels F/A-18 Hornet with tail number 5 appeared over the Pacific Ocean, heading directly east while leaving a trail of smoke behind. Flying low and relatively slowly, the blue and gold jet flew just feet above the highest trees in the cemetery before making a sharp turn to the south over San Diego Bay and heading west out over the ocean. The Blue Angels' website notes smoke from the plane is produced by pumping biodegradable paraffin-based oil directly into the exhaust nozzles of the plane. The oil is instantly vaporized into smoke. The smoke poses no hazard to the environment. The jet approached minutes later and the scene was repeated more than a half dozen times as military police and civilians on the military base tried to catch photos of the shiny but fast aircraft. While the jet was under low power during this exercise, the F/A-18 Hornet can fly at about 1,400 MPH and climb at a rate of 30,000 feet per minute. Variety magazine reports the Top Gun sequel will be released July 12, 2019, 33 years after the original. Cruise is reporting the sequel's title as "Top Gun: Maverick" while Paramount studios lists the title as "Top Gun 2." The plot reportedly is set in a world of drone technology and fifth-generation fighters along with exploring the end of the era of aerial dogfighting.

    Pacific Beach banner program Discover PB is offering merchants an opportunity to advertise their businesses and beautify the community at the same time via banners. Banners will be placed in high-traffic corridors on Garnet Avenue, Mission Boulevard and other prime locations throughout the beach community.  “The PB banner program is a community beautification program with the intent of promoting local businesses, events and community gatherings of general public interest on the streets and public rights-of -way,” said Sara Berns, Discover PB’s executive director. “It is also a way to promote neighborhood pride and identity.” Banners costing $350 include a business logo on the merchant’s choice of a Shop, Play, Eat or Farmers' Market banner to promote shopping small while encouraging tourists and locals alike to shop, eat and stay local.  Banner sponsorships are open to all PB small businesses and local organizations. Proceeds from banner sales will go directly back to neighborhoods, helping to fund ongoing community improvements. “We also have a renewal discount for anyone renewing their banner from last year,” said Berns. Día de los Muertos at Old Town In honor of one of Mexico’s most vibrant holidays, Old Town icons Bazaar del Mundo and Casa Guadalajara will team up to celebrate Día de los Muertos, Thursday through Saturday, Nov. 1-3. The entrance to Casa Guadalajara will become a marketplace of artisans and merchandise from Bazaar del Mundo, face painting, and a life-size Catrina sitting in an Instagrammable 1800s carriage. Throughout the weekend, performances from lively Ballet Folklorico dancers and Casa Guadalajara’s world-class Mariachi band – all in painted skeleton faces – plus Chinelos dancers, will take place. Popular in Mexico but rarely seen in the United States, Chinelos dancers dress in vibrant, traditional costumes designed to mock Europeans and European mannerisms from the colonial period to the end of the 19th century.   Arrest made in in the Point Loma Heights homicide On Tuesday, Oct. 9, at about 11:42 p.m., the San Diego Police Department Communication Center received a 911 call regarding a person in the parking lot of 4013 W. Point Loma Blvd, who had been shot. The first police units to arrive found a black female with a gunshot wound to the upper body. Paramedics arrived and transported the victim to a local hospital. Unfortunately, the victim was pronounced dead at the hospital. The preliminary investigation revealed that the victim and the suspect were standing next to a vehicle inside the parking lot at 4013 W. Point Loma Blvd. talking. At some point the two began to argue and one gunshot was heard. The victim was seen laying on the ground in the parking lot and a dark sedan was seen leaving the area at a high rate of speed east on W. Point Loma Blvd. The suspect was described as a black male in his mid to late 30s wearing dark clothing. The victim has been identified as 20-year old Octavia Williams from Phoenix. San Diego Police Department Homicide Detectives determined that 41-year old Joe Bennette Conway shot the victim and then fled the area before police arrived. A warrant was issued for Conway’s arrest for murder. On Oct. 30, Conway was located and arrested in Tempe, Ariz. with the help of the Phoenix Police Department. Conway is being held pending extradition for the murder of Williams. Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call the Homicide Unit at 619-531-2293 or Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477. Hookah lounge stabber sentenced to 4 years A man who stabbed an employee of a Pacific Beach hookah lounge was sentenced on Oct. 23 to four years in state prison. Simone Myjel Carter, 26, was given credit for already serving 93 days in jail by San Diego Superior Court Judge Polly Shamoon, which includes good conduct credits. No restitution was ordered for the Sept. 6 incident at the Pharaoh Hookah Lounge at 976 Garnet Ave. A 21-year-old employee was injured at 11:40 p.m. when he tried to eject Carter after he caused some problems in the lounge. Carter pulled a knife and stabbed the employee twice. The worker was taken to a hospital but the injuries were not life threatening. Shamoon denied probation and imposed four years in prison which Carter had agreed to accept when he pleaded guilty Sept. 20 to assault with a deadly weapon. The maximum sentence was eight years. Other charges were dismissed including two assault counts of a woman and another man and vandalism. Arrest made in Midway District homicide On Oct. 29 at 1:45 p.m., the San Diego Police Department Communication Center received a 911 call regarding a subject who was injured and possibly deceased inside the X-Spot adult bookstore located at 3600 Midway Drive. Fire personnel arrived on scene and found a 65-year-old white female with trauma to her upper body who was deceased. Fire personnel exited the business and police officers entered the location to ensure no one else was inside. San Diego Police homicide detectives were called to the scene to investigate the incident. Based on information developed during their investigation, 39-year-old Shaun Ward was identified as the suspect. Ward was arrested in the City of San Diego on Oct. 29 and was booked into jail for the murder. He is scheduled to be arraigned on Nov. 1 at 1:30 p.m. The victim was identified as 65- year-old Diane Spagnuolo of El Cajon. Dogs from Florida now available for adoption Some of the dogs transferred to San Diego from shelters in Florida are ready to find loving homes.

Drop-off locations open for mail ballot voters Mail-ballot voters have options when it comes to turning in their ballots for the Nov. 6 Gubernatorial General Election. They can send in their ballot by mail, drop it off at the Registrar of Voters Office in Kearny Mesa or drop it off at any one of 59 additional sites (including the Pacific Beach Library on Cass Street) throughout the county before Election Day. The drop-off sites will be open during each location’s regular business hours from Monday, Oct. 29 through Election Day. The high number of contests in the Nov. 6 election means San Diego County voters will be getting a two-card ballot, with races listed on the front and back of each card. The quicker that ballots are returned to the Registrar’s Office, the quicker they can be prepared for counting Election Night, saving time and taxpayer dollars. Fall Fest at Belmont Park Belmont Park’s Fall Fest continues during November, Fridays through Sundays, 5 p.m. to close.
