Someone is hiding cash around San Diego then posting clues to its whereabouts on twitter. The would-be philanthropist uses the twitter handle @SDCashStash. Yesterday he tweeted a picture clue of a “cash stash” that was found by man saying he’s going to use the money to buy dinner for some homeless people. This all started in San Francisco when another person was doing the same thing using the twitter handle @HiddenCash. It’s become an internet phenomenon. Reportedly @SDCashStash is going to tweet out another clue today.

Proposition’s B and C on tomorrow’s ballot make changes to the controversial Barrio Logan zoning plan and some supporters are demonstrating outside a Barrio Logan Elementary School at 8:15 this morning.

Opponents say any changes to the current plan could hurt businesses.
