It’s going to be hot today

Parts of San Diego County will top 100 degrees today. Starting at 6:00 AM there fire restrictions in the Cleveland National Forest because of high wild fire danger. That means no camp fires or open flame cooking and no smoking except for in your car or house.

Common offences are drinking in public, smoking in the park, littering, and urination in public. If your offence qualifies meet authorities at the Pacific Beach Shore Club 9:00 AM on July 8th with $40 dollars cash.

The continuing political fight between Mayor Bob Filner and City Attorney Jan Goldsmith is a little hotter now. Yesterday it came out that the Mayor had the police remove one of the City Attorney’s top lawyers during a closed-session meeting. According to a partial transcript of the meeting Mayor Filner asked the attorney if he was going to leak anything from the meeting. Of course the attorney refused to answer. KGTV obtained a copy of the transcript and posted them on-line.

San Diego’s Mayor Bob Filner is in the news a lot today…

First he announced that former Republican presidential candidate and La Jolla resident Mitt Romney agreed to help with a San Diego/Tijuana Olympic bid.

To win the bid the Olympic Organizing Committee will have to change the rule and allow one bid from two countries.

Today at 9:00 Filner’s budget proposal is continuing to be examined. But the controversial part isn’t until this afternoon. The mayor wants to cut City Attorney, Jan Goldsmith’s budget by 1.4 million dollars. Goldsmith and Filner are political rivals. There have been several public scuffles including one time when the Mayor interrupted one of Goldsmith at a press conference … yelling at Goldsmith from the audience. The proposed cuts mean 13 people could lose their jobs.

The sentencing for voice of Charlie Brown is this afternoon at 1:30 in San Diego’s downtown courthouse. 56-year-old Peter Robbins pleaded guilty to stalking and making criminal threats. His sentence could be anything from probation to over three years in prison. Robbins is the voice of the iconic character for several of the famous Peanuts films including “A Charlie Brown Christmas” and “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.

Also … In front of the downtown courthouse at 11:00 this morning family of Rabecca Zahau is talking to the press. They want to tell us about their “continuing efforts to identify and hold accountable those responsible for Rebecca’s untimely death.”

San Diego’s Mayor and City Attorney are at it again. City Attorney Jan Goldsmith is now accusing Mayor Filner of allowing what the City Attorney is calling illegal marijuana dispensaries to proliferate.

In a press conference Goldsmith said “…the mayor has refused to allow case referrals to our office…”

In response the Mayor said “I’ve always enforced the law, that’s my job…”

The San Diego City Council asked Goldsmith to draft new pot shop zoning regulations to replace the current one. That is expected to take about a month.

The District Attorney is expected to file murder charges against the man accused of beating a prominent San Diego architect to death. 31-year-old Higinio Soriano Salgado worked for 56-year-old Grahm Downes and was at Downes’s house for a party and they got into a fight Salgado beat Downes so severely he is now brain dead.

Protesters are marching at San Diego’s Federal Building today at noon. They are protesting the Department of Homeland Security’s employment audits. Protesters say that many of the people being fired for not having the proper papers would qualify as “citizenship path worthy” under a comprehensive immigration bill. They would like the President to stop the audits until the bill is passed.

This morning at 9:00 the San Diego Association of Governments Board of Directors is meeting and they will talk about extending the San Diego Trolley’s Blue line.
