Cathy Ives is mad as hell and she’s not going to take it anymore. What she’s upset about is trash and irresponsible behavior at Mission Beach.

“I am done with the amount of drinking on the beach,” said Ives, who cleans up beach trash daily from the jetty to Belmont Park oceanfront.

“Friday morning I picked up more than 100 glass beer bottles. Sunday I picked up more than 50 glass beer bottles at Belmont Park. And there were five to seven illegal fires still burning, strewn with liquor bottles, glass, aluminum and plastic. It is too much.”

Noting glass bottles of any kind are forbidden everywhere on the beach any time, Ives added bottles and trash from fires are just a part of overall beach pollution.

Ives tried reporting beach clean-up issues on the City’s Get It Done App, but was not satisfied with the response.“They (city) said it needs to go to the police,” she said. “But there’s no place to put it, I reported it under illegal dumping, and they (police) said it needs to go someplace else.”

Ives was told at a Mission Beach Town Council meeting by a police representative that SDPD does not have the resources to do beach cleanup.

Ives has been complaining to various government agencies about beach cleanup problems for the past 18 months and continues to document the issues providing photos. “I have a whole Facebook album just devoted to this,” she said.

Ives is requesting that the City enforce its laws requiring:

• No drinking on the beach;

• No smoking on the beach;

• No glass bottles on the beach;

• No fires directly on sand on the beach;

• Enforcement of littering laws.

“Public safety is our top priority,” said José Ysea, supervising public information officer for City of San Diego. “During the summer months, the City of San Diego beefs up police and lifeguard presence in our beach areas. With 17 miles of coastline our personnel work diligently to enforce all laws and rules along our beaches and bays.

“As in any of our other communities, we not only encourage, but rely on the public to be our eyes and ears when they see or hear something wrong. If they witness anyone in distress or see a dangerous situation, we ask that they call 9-1-1 immediately,” Ysea said.

“If they have non-emergency issues, we ask that they use our Get-it-Done app available on Android and Apple devices, as well as at sandiego.gov/getitdone,” Ysea said. “As part of Mayor Kevin Faulconer’s CleanSD initiative, we now have clean-up crews working 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This has sped up our response time for reports relating to trash and debris.”

Ives has some recommendations for how beach enforcement should be improved. 

“The number one thing is better signage,” Ives said. “I am advocating they enforce the ordinances and put up big signs saying, ‘No drinking, no glass. no styrofoam.’”

Ives also cautioned that Mission Beach is not being patrolled at the right times.

“The police need to start patrolling on the sand from the jetty to north Mission Beach from 11 p.m. to 4 a.m., not 6 a.m.,” she argued. “That is ‘not’ when the action is happening. They should be giving tickets, fines.

Pointing out styrofoam is now banned because it’s not biodegradable, Ives noted the material is winding up in boogie boards nonetheless. “There is no enforcement,” she said. “Stores should have stopped selling those, as well as styrofoam ice chests.”

Concerning plastic straws, which state law is gradually phasing out requiring them to be requested in restaurants, Ives noted, “There are more straws on the beach now than ever.”

Concerning fires, Ives said: “It’s illegal to put them directly in the sand. They need to be in a portable device or in a fire pit. Due to the still-warm fires, I have had to ‘encircle' the fires with bottles or toys.There is nobody to put out the illegal still-burning fires.”

Ives noted the jetty has 10 illegal fire pits strewn with trash. “I can't even tell you how bad Bonita Point is,” she said. “Between the people sleeping in cars, the drunks sleeping on the beach … it is awful.”

Ives added the Mission Beach jetty has become especially troublesome.

“Rats are out in full force at the jetty,” she warned. “You got rid of the cats that killed the rats. Do you know that hepatitis A can be spread this way?”

Worst of all, said Ives: “There is broken glass everywhere – on the beach, in the parking lots, in the picnic areas, on the boardwalk. Another resident in less than a week picked up more than 200 pounds of glass, mainly beer bottles in less than a mile. He has been living here for years and states it is the worst he has ever seen.”

Added Ives: “The trashcans are filled with glass bottles. The tide line is strewn with glass bottles and cigarettes, food wrappers, and clothing. I’ve washed more than 900 beach towels, some from hotels, and blankets left on the beach and donated them, as well as 115 beach toys, all left behind.”

Responding to clean-up complaints from Mission Beach residents, District 2 Councilmember Dr. Jen Campbell said: “Keeping our beaches clean is a prime concern for my office. We’ve been in contact with Environmental Services to ensure that the additional Clean SD money that was approved this year in the city’s budget is focused on our beaches and boardwalks.”

I’ve been seeing my fiance for over three year and yet the physicality is somewhat lacking. We see one another roughly every 5 days, she says she doesn’t want to rush in and neither do I, although I would like to see some progression. There is some future faking on her part which I am agreeable to, but then not coming up with firm arrangements. I know she’s been out of a long term relationship for a four years now and that it ended ‘messily’ in her words. I do not know the details since she has not felt able to tell me, citing that she ‘needs to be in the right mood for our marriage. I have not pushed this too much however as she clearly doesn’t feel able to talk about it. This then coupled with the lack of total physicality would seem to indicate she is not ready totally for a relationship. She says I need to be patient, but I was wondering whether she is really being honest with me and our relationship because i loved her so much and her past seems to take her away from me. I knew a friend who had similar situation and asked for advise where i ended up with a love spell with Dr DEGBONO from degbonotemple@gmail.com.. I had no regret at all taken the step but its improved my love life and we got married expecting our first child any moment soon.. Whatsapphim on 14696301798

Testimony By Tamara Noel, How to get your ex partner back fast!

I was hurt and heart broken when a very big problem occurred in my marriage seven months ago, between me and my husband. so terrible that he took the case to court for a divorce. he said that he never wanted to stay with me again and that he didn't love me anymore. So he packed out of the house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get him back after much begging, but all to no avail and he confirmed it that he has made his decision and he never wanted to see me again. So on one evening as i was coming back from work, i met an old friend of mine who asked of my husband. So i explained every thing to him and so he told me that the only way i can get my husband back is to visit a spell caster called DR ISIKOLO, because it has really worked for him too. Though i never believed in spell but i had no other choice, than to follow his advice. Then he gave me the Email address of the spell caster whom he visited. So the next morning, i sent a mail to the address he gave to me and the spell caster assured me that i will get my husband back the next 48 hours once i comply. What an amazing statement!! I never believed. so he spoke with me and told me everything that i needed to do. Then doing the work for me and after 48 hours, So surprisingly my husband who didn't call me for the past 7 months, gave me a call to inform me that he was coming back. So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day with lots of love and joy,and he apologized for his mistake and for the pain he caused me and our children. Then from that day, our relationship was now stronger than how it were before by the help of Dr. ISIKOLO. So i will advice you out there if you have any problem contact him, i give you 100% guarantee that he will help you.

I am impressed. This is really happening to me. I have my ex husband back. My name is Veronica Adrian. I am very happy today to be the one to write about my helper who prayed for me over my relationship. God indeed used this man to help my situation. Please, hear my words if you are looking for a spell caster to help you, contact Dr Isikolo. He is the best spell caster to help you today. Two years ago, I and my husband had a huge quarrel which led to our divorce. It was hell for me and my baby boy that we had to move to another city. I became a single parent. I only met Dr Isikolo about a month ago when i told him about my situation and he told me not to worry about it. Within two days, my ex husband came back to me. It happened on a Tuesday morning when i received a call from home (my parents) that he has been looking for me. I accepted him to come to my place and apologized to me kneeling down in front of our son. I knew instantly that this man have helped me. I am a very happy woman with everything that happened in my life. If you want to contact a spell caster, meet Dr Isikolo and you will be surprised at the marvelous changes in your life.

My name is Nabrel Kim. from FL in USA. Am here to testify of a great and powerful spell caster named Dr. Uzoya I was so confused and devastated when my lover left me for another girl. I needed him back desperately because i loved him so much. So i contacted this great spell caster for  help.

HOW Dr,UzoyaTHE GREAT SPELL CASTER HELP BRING MY EX LOVER. . My names are Jamison Patel from United States. Great Dr Uzoya is really powerful and knows how to do his job perfectly. If not for him i could not imagine what would have happened. My ex was always picking up an argument with me and was always beating me. He started acting strange and funny and left me for no cause for another girl. I thought all hope was gone. I searched for help on the internet and i came across Dr Uzoya. I saw so many testimonies about him. I was delighted and i contacted him on his email and told him what was going on. He laughed and assured me to calm down that he will help me and that my ex will come back begging me. He did his work and cast the spell for me and in 3 days time, my ex came apologizing just as he told me. Today we both live together and we are even more in love than how we use to be before he left. Contact the Dr Uzoya for your own help.You can contact him on his email; driraborspellcaster@gmail.com you can also reach him on  1(301)909-8775
