CHP Plays Santa To Barrio Logan Kids

For the second year in a row, San Diego’s California Highway Patrol officers handed out more than 1,000 new toys on Tuesday for their “CHiPs for Kids” holiday charity program.

In Barrio Logan, hundreds of kids turned up to see Santa and Chipper, the mascot for the California Highway Patrol.

“It’s fantastic to see their eyes light up as we drive in,” said CHP Sgt. Jim McNamar.

Emily Valverde, who helped organize the event, said having law enforcement interact with the community can have a positive impact on the kids.

“Most of the time kids see the police officer as someone not approachable. This gives them the opportunity to see they can be your friends,” she said.

AM Briefing from Bowlersdesk.com for February 14, 2014

An early morning crash shuts down the Northbound 125 and leaves at least one dead. At around 1:40 AM reports came in that 3 cars collided then about 5 minutes later a fourth one smashed into the wreckage. California Highway Patrol has the Northbound 125 shutdown from H Street to the 54. Traffic is being diverted onto surface streets. Just avoid this area all together.

Yesterday a federal court reversed a lower court decision that denied a San Diego journalist the right to carry a concealed gun. The three-judge panel from 9th Circuit Court of Appeals voted 2 to 1 overturning the lower court’s ruling and sending the case back down to the lower courts. The appeals court says that San Diego’s policy requiring a specific reason for wanting the gun is too restrictive. Judge O’Scannlain says “Given this requirement, the `typical’ responsible, law-abiding citizen in San Diego County cannot bear arms in public for self-defense.”
