    In an annual rite of passage, 223 Mission Bay High School graduating seniors were unleashed onto an unsuspecting world at commencement ceremonies June 11. “We all recognize the many obstacles we’ve endured to reach this moment,” said emcee and graduating senior Ashey Sphar. “Despite our many differences, we are leaving here today with the same principles that will aid us in our next chapter of life. We are open minded, we are risk-takers, we are balanced, we are the generation that will push boundaries and evoke change.” Senior class president Cynthia Taboada was in turns tearful, and gleeful, in delivering her speech. “We finally made it,” she said. “Thank you for all the teachers who filled us with knowledge and got us to this point. Thanks to classified staff who are sometimes overlooked. All I ask is that you take all these beautiful memories from Mission Bay with you – and that you don’t use plastic straws. We will be the generation of change and improvement.” Valedictorian Tetsuro Escudero congratulated the Class of 2019 for being “the best class to graduate from Mission Bay High School” while adding, “I’ve alway been surprised by the substantial amount of diversity here.” Escudero paid a fun salute to all the many colorful teachers and student group at MBHS, before mentioning the janitors whom, he said, “made the bathrooms smell like candy.” An International Baccalaureate student headed to UC Berkeley, Escudero said, “Mission Bay and the IB program connect students at a fundamental level.” He closed by exhorting future IB and other students to: “Believe in yourself, and, most of all, don’t procrastinate.” Salutatorian Zander Caufield noted MBHS’s 2019 graduating class “was the most athletic class in Mission Bay history… won more league and CIF championships… had the largest amount of IB diploma candidates … was also the most musically, and artistically, talented.” Describing MBHS as a “tiny high school” where everyone knows your name, even the principal, Caufield said: “They feel like a family to me, perhaps dysfunctional at times. But at Mission Bay, we put the word fun in dysfunctional.” Caufield closed saying, “I wish everyone happiness in their lives. Ultimately, no matter how rich or successful you are, finding happiness is worth more than all the money in the world. Go Bucs.” “You are about to begin the next journey in life,” said MBHS principal Ernest Remillard. “I am confident you are leaving with the skills that employers are looking for. I look at each of you as complex problem solvers in real-world scenarios. You have developed critical thinking skills.” Added Remillard: “The Class of 2019 is one of the most creative groups of students I have ever had the pleasure to come in contact with. Your musical skills are second to none, Mr. B (music/band teacher J.P. Balmat) has literally taken you around the world – twice.” Cautioning grads to “alway be respectful,” Remillard advised, “There will be challenges along the way, but use what you’ve learned at Mission Bay, inside and outside the classroom the last four years, to guide you. And, most of all, enjoy what comes next.” Noting San Diego Unified School District is “the greatest urban school district in the nation,” trustee Michael McQuary sent Class of 2019 students off noting, “I used to say, ‘We want to prepare our students for the future.’ “But now I think we need to prepare the future for this class.”

    Life is funny for women trying to break through the brick wall; but do they have the ‘BALLS’ to become comedians?

    With 20 live theatre venues, 12 acting schools and 10 comedy clubs, San Diego is not a bad launch pad for those trying to catch a break in the entertainment industry. From The Old Globe to The American Comedy Co., the city is enriched by theatre and is particularly welcoming to those who are willing to bear their amateur skills on the live stage. Two of those brave souls are Jules Chanel Hoberg and Ava Bunn, both looking to tap into the world of comedy, one through stand-up and the other through acting. Point Loma High graduate Bunn, now 18, has started attending The American Comedy Co.’s Tuesday night Open Mic Nights where she recently had the chance to see Hoberg, who prefers “Chanel,” take her shot at the spotlight. “It’s in these little clubs and theatres where people often get discovered,” said Bunn. “My friend and I saw probably 40 people go up on Open Mic Night and take a swing at comedy. It’s amazing to know there’s so many people out there trying to pursue their passions and do what they love here in San Diego.” While Chanel, a Pacific Beach resident, had no idea she was being observed by another aspiring comic, she says she’s not surprised. To her, this is one of San Diego’s many charms when it comes to entertainment. “San Diego is very pro-youth,” said Chanel, who moved from Bremerton, Wash. to Pacific Beach this past January on an impulse. “There’s quite a few of us going for the same goals in comedy and entertainment. It’s a city definitely geared towards younger people and it’s a lot more welcoming than most other big cities.” Bunn added: “I’ve heard from people, ‘Good luck being an actor. You’ll live with your parents forever.’ I know it’s going to be tough, but there’s no point in not believing in what you love to do.” For the past 10 years Bunn has performed in local theatre shows, such as in “Annie Get Your Gun” and The Old Globe’s “Dr. Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas,” as well as starred in college short films and national commercials for Petco, SeaWorld, and Jeep. This May, Bunn was asked by TEDxYouth@SanDiego to do a TED Talk. Her subject? Having the “BALLS” to chase your dreams. Standing for “Believe,” “Achieve,” “Listen,” “Learn,” and “Support,” Bunn, who will be attending University of Southern California on scholarship for an acting major in comedy, believes these are the main ingredients everyone needs in order to successfully achieve their dreams. “Don’t have a back-up plan,” said Bunn, during her talk. “Grow a pair… Stop developing your plan B. You’re putting energy in the wrong direction. Don’t have something to fall back on. Instead, fail forward.” It certainly took “BALLS” for Chanel to get herself on the stand-up stage for the first time. While she’s harbored a deep appreciation for comedy since age 17, Chanel still had serious doubts about getting on the San Diego stage, until she had a chance encounter with a celebrity in March. “I was working at Hennessey’s Tavern in La Jolla and just happened to serve David Koechner right before his stand-up show in La Jolla’s Comedy Store that night,” said Chanel. “I asked him for advice about getting into comedy and he said to me, ‘Why are you nervous? You already know you’re funny, so just do it.” That night, March 26, Chanel went to the American Comedy Co.club and did her first stand up. Now, the comedian works at the comedy club, does stand-up every Tuesday night. Also performing at Mad House Comedy and the La Jolla Comedy Store, Chanel’s bits are drawn from stories of new friends, old boyfriends, her “boring” degree in accounting and, of course, her “posh” name. “Comedy is like therapy for poor people,” said Chanel. “That’s a joke everyone says. But it’s something I really apply to my comedy. I’ve had three failed relationships in the six months I’ve been here. That’s tragic to some people, but I think it’s pretty hilarious.” Bunn, who was called “mute child” by her gymnast coach, says she “grew a pair” after her first rejection at age 8 from San Diego Junior Theater’s Miracle Worker production. “I used to be the biggest introvert ever… but acting has totally brought me out of my shell once I realized how badly I wanted to do it,” said Bunn, who has gotten the chance to work with theatre legends Beth Malone and Allison Spratt Pearce. “I fell in love with the adrenaline rush that comes with improve, not having a safety net or any back-up takes. And I’ve learned from the best-of-the-best here.” San Diego might not have the highest profile gigs, but according to Chanel and Bunn, it offers a welcoming atmosphere to beginners, the perfect environment for growing a pair of “BALLS.”

    Campland, environmental groups debate De Anza plans at Mission Bay Park Committee

    Campland’s proposal to be granted a short-term City lease to do clean-up and asbestos removal at the now-abandoned De Anza RV area is either a win-win or a land grab delaying wetlands restoration. Those opposing perspectives clashed at Mission Bay Park Committee’s June 4 meeting at Santa Clara Recreation Center. It was a Campland “home crowd,” as the meeting was packed with residents in yellow shirts who were supporters of the year-round, 40-acre Mission Bay destination RV resort with 500-plus RV sites.  Once again, environmentalists were pitted against commercial interests vying for influence in the City’s ongoing De Anza Revitalization Plan. That plan seeks to reimagine, repurpose and revitalize the northeast corner of Mission Bay Park.  The 166-acre, bay front project area identified in the Mission Bay Park Master Plan includes De Anza Cove Park, Mission Bay Golf Course, the Mission Bay Athletic Fields, the Pacific Beach Tennis Club and the Boat and Ski Club.  Pierre Saladin, of the City’s Real Estate Assets Department, told MBPC De Anza Mobile Home Park’s current operator noticed the City that they were “terminating their operating contract effective June 30.”  Saladin said the City’s proposed, short-term lease with Campland would be “four years initially, with one-year extensions that automatically take place if the lessee completes public benefits within a 24-month period.” Jacob Gelfand, vice president of operations for Campland, made his case to MBPC during a 15-minute slideshow presentation. He argued the dilapidated and asbestos-contaminated former De Anza Mobile Home Park constitutes an emergency health threat. “Overgrown brush and trees also pose a hazard, and the bike and pedestrian path going all the way around the peninsula are in need of repair to make it safe and accessible,” said Gelfand. “The bad news is, it’s going to take a minimum of five years for the City to move forward on its long-term revitalization plan. The good news is, we (Campland) can address some of these challenges during that interim period, without prejudicing the outcome of that long-term plan process.” Added Gelfand, “If anything, it (short-term lease) is going to accelerate the timing and dramatically reduce the cost and complexity in moving forward with whatever (redevelopment) plan is ultimately selected and approved.” MBPC board member Chris Redfern, representing District 2, asked, “Any reason why the City hasn’t looking into a month-to-month lease on the site?” City real estate reps replied that the short notice given by the former mobile home park’s current operator precluded that option. Gelfand’s plan includes: a five-year lease to take over camping at De Anza RV; a 24-month timeframe to do asbestos abatement and remove abandoned mobile homes; re-opening the scenic coastal bike and pedestrian path around De Anza peninsula; adding 150 more RV campsites to the existing 260, as well as a shuttle between De Anza and Campland; and extending Campland’s lease through 2026. Not everyone agreed with Gelfand’s plan, with some critics questioning its motivation. “We’re looking forward to moving ahead with wetlands restoration that was identified 25 years ago in the Mission Bay master plan,” said Karin Zirk, of Friends of Rose Creek. Warning of the potential for legal challenges, Zirk added, “I do not want a lease to be granted that would end up in litigation, where everyone loses.” PB activist Scott Chipman spoke in favor of the Mission Bay Gateway Plan, missionbaygateway, which calls for balancing recreational, educational and environmental needs in Mission Bay Park redevelopment. Kristen Victor, representing C-3, a nonprofit dedicated to preserving the region’s built and natural environment, said: “We believe a holistic plan needs to be provided. There’s no current emergency here.” “We are at a unique crossroads where the City has an opportunity to revitalize Mission Bay into a world-class water park with guest lodging, recreation, education, mobility and accessibility for all,” said C-3 prior to the June 4 meeting. “Yet, piecemeal planning and short-term interests threaten to diminish this historic opportunity… the City has proposed a short-term development deal for a portion of De Anza Cove. If the proposal is approved, commercial land uses will become further entrenched, limiting the ability to revitalize Mission Bay Park into a world-class destination with greater bay front access.” Gelfand’s plan is expected to be heard by the City Council later in June. The Coastal Commission would also have to sign off on it at a later date.

    Why is it that hard core environmentalists are condescending elitists? If Joe Lunchbucket from Iowa wants to bring the family for a vacation, he can park his 29' trailer for $135.81 a night at Campland. Or, if Campland is converted to a swap with chain link panels surrounding it, Joe can take the family around the corner to the Hilton. It will run almost $500 a night plus the TOT. If he stays at Campland, he has $364 to spend in the community. I'm old enough to remember when Mission Bay was a total swamp and San Diego Fertilizer processed the sewage sludge near Fiesta Island for resale.

    The Rewild project will not preclude camping. There is plenty of room north of the planned Rewild project on DeAnza Point for vacation motor homes and campers. The Rewild project will also provide better access to the restored area for local and for the campers who want to enjoy it.

    Rhythm’s Chicken & Waffles What started out a year ago as a food truck in Big O Tires on Garnet Avenue has now materialized into a fast-casual eatery specializing in Southern fried chicken, burgers and bacon-wrapped hot dogs. The brick-and-mortar version of Rhythm’s Chicken & Waffles is the long-held dream of owner Brian Foxworth and his mom and dad. “Our original chicken and waffle sandwich is the main, hyped dish since we opened a couple weeks ago,” said Foxworth, adding that the loaded chicken fries and Hebrew National “street dawgs” wrapped in bacon and topped with grilled onions, mayo, mustard and ketchup are also top sellers. 1136 Garnet Ave., 619-452-8118, rhythmanddesserts.com. Pacific Fresh Grill Mexico City-style tacos on the cheap are all the rage at the new Pacific Fresh Grill in Pacific Beach. Two styles of pork – al pastor and cochinita pibil – are among the specialty tacos, which sell for $2 apiece. There are also fish and carne asada options for a buck more, plus deconstructed tacos priced at $6 a plate. The taqueria is minimally decorated and offers limited seating. 2015 Garnet Ave., 619-279-1685, pacificfreshgrill.com. Better Buzz Coffee Hillcrest-based Better Buzz Coffee opened a drive-through/walk-in outlet with a rooftop deck in Pacific Beach. It is the company’s ninth location within San Diego County and the third in Pacific Beach. Distinguished by contrasting colors set against a modern, white backdrop, it’s the only location to offer soft-serve ice cream, which is available in vegan matcha or flavored after the company’s “best drink ever” coffee beverage. (The ice cream will be offered as well at the upcoming La Jolla location at 909 Prospect St., due to open in August.) The menu also features all of the signature hot and iced coffee drinks, smoothies and grilled sandwiches. 822 Grand Ave., 858-273-2899, betterbuzzcoffee.com. Donut Bar Donut Bar founder and Point Loma resident Santiago Campa is opening his third San Diego location of the gourmet donut business in Pacific Beach his summer, at 1380 Garnet Ave. His “hope-ening”’ date is the third week in August, he said. Since launching Donut Bar’s original location at 631 B St. in Downtown San Diego, Campa has developed about 60 different types of donuts, 24 of which are available on any given day. The shop is also famous for one-pound “big poppa tart donuts,” which fold in Kellogg’s Pop Tarts and other fillings. “The new spot will feature everything on our tried and true menu, plus a nice outdoor patio,” Campa said. The address formerly housed Stuffed Burger, and with an annexed space in the back that operated as the short-lived Frat Boy Donuts. Campa gutted and remodeled both areas. Other Donut Bar locations are in East Lake, Temecula, Las Vegas and Scottsdale. donutbar.com. Cruisers Gourmet Subs Cruisers Gourmet Subs in La Jolla held its grand opening in early June, bringing to the village a diverse selection of toasted sandwiches made with meats and cheeses sliced in-house. The rolls are sourced from Bread & Cie and the sauces used on the subs are made onsite. Owner Kris Shea also runs another sandwich shop with his sister in Colorado. Here, the eatery features indoor-outdoor seating, sells beer and wine, and delivers within a mile radius. 637 Pearl St., 858-230-6414, cruisersgourmetsubs.com. Cove House The recently shuttered Cody’s La Jolla is now home to Cove House, a breakfast-lunch spot launched by restaurateur Darren Moore, who also owns the nearby Shore Rider and The Cordova Bar in Linda Vista. The kitchen is run by chefs Lance Repp of the University Club and Tommy Rogers, formerly of Leroy’s Kitchen + Lounge. Their menu offers hearty, traditional fare with south-of-the-border touches. There is also a tribute to the late Theodore Geisel (a.k.a. Dr. Seuss) with a dish named “Sam and I.” It features an egg tinted by seasonal greens that is set atop Nueske’s ham and garlic-rosemary sourdough bread. The construct is covered under a mantle of hatch chili gravy. Open from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., daily, Moore tells us that he may add dinner service and happy hour to the schedule after obtaining his beer and wine license in a few months. 8030 Girard Ave., 858-999-0034. The Cravory The Cravory in Point Loma was recently named “most innovative company” for 2019 by the San Diego Chamber of Commerce. The chamber bestowed the award to the gourmet cookie company in 2015 as well. “Over the last 10 years we’ve pushed the limits to what a cookie can be,” said co-owner Collin Smith, adding that The Cravory has introduced more than 4,000 cookie flavors since the business began at farmers markets a decade ago. With a second location in Carlsbad, both shops just added ice cream to their menus. It’s sourced from National City-based Niederfrank’s and flavored in-house by various cookies. On any given day, the cookie selection showcases 12 signature flavors in addition to six new flavors introduced monthly. Among the June creations are Rocky Road, banana cake and “Bay City beer and pretzels” using beer from Bay City Brewing. July roll outs will include almond brittle and sweet hibiscus varieties. 3960 W. Point Loma Blvd., 619-795-9077, thecravory.com. Village Kitchen The owners of Village Kitchen in Ocean Beach have put the 32-year-old business up for sale. But until a buyer comes along, the popular breakfast-lunch spot will remain in operation, said Eliana Lopez, whose father Faustino Lopez founded the restaurant. “He’s ready to retire,” his daughter told us, adding that her family does not own the building. “It will be up to whoever buys the business and takes over the lease whether they want to keep the name and the recipes.” 4853 Newport Ave., 619-222-0151. Pop Pie Co. The owners of Pop Pie Co. in University Heights have decided not to open a second location in Ocean Beach, in the structure at 1852 Bacon St. that housed Nati’s Mexican Restaurant for more than 50 years. For several months the rumor persisted that Steven Torres and his spouse, Nan Suebsarakham would take over the property to open a larger version of their pot pie shop. Though in early June they issued a statement that read in part: “We’ve parted ways with the developer of Pop Pie Co.’s Ocean Beach location. We’re disappointed that it didn’t work out, but we’re incredibly thankful for and encouraged by all the support we received from the community.” The couple indicated they are hoping to bring the eatery into other communities in the near future. 4404 Park Blvd., 619-501-4440, poppieco.com. Himalayan Palace Tucked behind Phil’s BBQ is the new Himalayan Palace Restaurant, which replaced Flavors of Mayura. The business is run by Khem Kharel who owns the well-established Himalayan Cuisine in La Mesa and other similar kitchens in Mission Valley, Chula Vista and Mira Mesa. Unique to the Midway District location are house-made noodles and dumplings, plus a daily lunch buffet (11 a.m. to 3 p.m.) for $11.99 that features an array of Nepalese and Tibetan dishes accented with exotic spices and chili peppers. 3760 Sports Arena Blvd., 619-510-4966, himalayanpalacesd.com.
