Escondido SWAT officers thought they had a teen suspect wanted for assault with a deadly weapon hold up in an apartment, only to learn the young-man escaped. Officers saw the teen run into an apartment on the 900 block of East Mission Avenue in Escondido at around 6:30 last night.

The vacant lot is at Broadway and 4th in downtown San Diego and it’s even visible on Google Maps.

AM Briefing from Bowlersdesk.com for December 6, 2012

Labor is making gains in San Diego politics.

Lorena Gonzalez C-E-O of the San Diego and Imperial County Labor Council says she’s going to run for state assembly; however she’s only running if the current office holder Ben Hueso wins his bid for the state senate.

Ok here’s how this is working out

When Bob Filner won the mayor’s office his Congressional seat was up for grabs and Juan Vargas stepped in and won that seat. Vargas left his state senate seat open and Ben Hueso is hoping to win that seat in a special election … now if he wins, which is very likely, then Lorena Gonzalez will step in and run for Hueso’s now open state assembly seat.

Its political musical chairs …

Oh and FYI they are all Democrats.

Today students getting ready for finals at Cal State San Marcos will get a bit of stress relief from some therapy dogs.
