They are going to hang banners off of the 6th Ave Bridge over the I-5 freeway in downtown protest potential American military strikes in Syria.

Xusha Brown Jr was riding in a car going east on the 8 freeway near the 125 interchange when someone pulled alongside him and shot into the car fatally injuring Brown. La Mesa Police believe that other drivers on the freeway at that time must have seen the incident and they hope the reward will entice them to come forward.

The air show generates about $17 million for local economy and San Diego politicos have been trying to find a way to use some of that to keep the airshow going after part of the funding for the show was cut because of the federal budget sequestration. The air show will go one this October 4th and 5th with some changes. It remains to be seen if the money can be raised to bring any or the cut flight demonstration teams. But there will still be plenty to look at and do. Like nightly concerts, a run/walk, drag racing, and family bike ride.

And finally tonight at 4:30 the Chargers are giving media a special preview of all the new food on offer at Qualcomm Stadium. It’s all in honor of tonight’s first official NFL game between the Denver Broncos and the World Champion Baltimore Ravens. Kickoff is at 5:30 PM
