San Diego’s Top Gun themed tax video staring Mayor Faulconer, Councilman Todd Gloria, and former mayor Jerry Sanders.

Every year the San Diego County Taxpayers Associating hosts an annual event called “Annual Golden Fleece & Watchdog Awards”.

This year’s Top Gun themed video starts our former mayor Jerry Sander, current mayor Kevin Faulconer and City Council president Todd Gloria.

A little preview of the video has hit YouTube.

Enjoy!

Researchers hunt for traces of MLK speech at SDSU

Researchers hunt for traces of MLK speech at SDSU

fox5sandiego.com

SAN DIEGO — Fifty years ago in May, civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr. gave a speech San Diego State University, yet little is known about the event.

Seth Mallios, chairman of the SDSU Anthropology Department and the school’s historian, is hoping to collect memories and memorabilia from the talk at the school’s Open Air Theatre, but little is known about the event. Researchers have located only two of the estimated 4,000 people who attended the speech and they have only come up with a grainy newspaper photograph of the event, which took place on May 29, 1964.

“When Dr. King came to San Diego State, he had just been named Time Magazine’s `Man of the Year’ and was about to be named the youngest Nobel Peace Prize winner in history — he was already a global icon,” Mallios said. “Yet, the audio and transcript of the speech have…

AM Briefing from Bowlersdesk.com for April 3, 2014

State politics is hitting home.

Republican lieutenant governor candidate Ron Nehring is proposing some changes that he thinks will help to stop political corruption.

Nehring is well known in San Diego and very active within the local Republican party.

Four of California’s Democratic politicians are facing civil or criminal charges most notably Democratic state senator Leland Yee who was arrested for being part of a gun-running operation. Nehring is trying to use this in his campaign against his Democratic opponent the current lieutenant governor Gavin Newsom. His proposal, which in my opinion will go no wear past his campaign, is really about trying to get voters to see Democrats as corrupt and unethical.

However Newsom and Governor Brown (who is a Democrat too) are calling on the senators facing charges to all resign.

It is still technically too early to say that Nehring is the official Republican candidate. However many believe he will be. It’ll be interesting to see if voters begin to see things the way Nehring does and how that will shape the future of California politics.
Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom is in San Diego today. At 11:00 AM he’s sitting on a panel at the American Association of Political Consultants annual meeting that’s happening here through tomorrow. The panel is talking about politically active bicycling groups. He’s supposed to talk to the press after the panel and I wonder if anyone is going to ask him about Nehring’s new anti-corruption platform?

Dangerous distracted driving is what San Diego law enforcement is talking about this morning at 10:00. Officers will be demo’ing how dangerous it can be to talk on cell phone while driving at Qualcomm Stadium’s C, D and E parking lots.

This morning at 11:00 Fast-food employees are protesting what they say is “wage theft” out front of a KFC and Taco Bell at 4290 Clairemont Mesa Boulevard.

There are two sentencings worth mentioning both at 1:30 this afternoon. In Vista’s courthouse Abel Hernandez is being put behind bars for molesting a relative for years.

Then in Chula Vista’s courthouse Azteco Frankie Soto is being sentenced for destroying a school cafeteria over last year’s Thanksgiving holiday.

A new playground is being designed by the experts who will use it, the kids. At 3:00 this afternoon the City of El Cajon, Foresters, Stoney’s Kids, the Boys & Girls Clubs of East County and KaBOOM! are all coming together to hear firsthand what kids want in a playground. They’ll be at Wells Park on Madison Ave in El Cajon.

And finally this morning at 8:00 the San Diego Safari Park is giving the media a special preview of the opening of its annual Butterfly Jungle. The enclosure has over 30 species of butterfly all fluttering about.
