AM Briefing from Bowlersdesk.com for April 2, 2014

San Diego County mountains are expecting up to 7 inches of snow today according to the National Weather Service. A cold storm system is moving through the county this morning and elevations over 4500 feet will be hit. Tomorrow could be a good day to go visit the snow! Because that’s what we do in San Diego … we visit the snow!

However the snow hitting in the east means that rain is falling in along the coast. That could really mess up our commute. So drive carefully.

The Affordable Care Act hit home for San Diego yesterday when the President mentioned a 57-year-old Solana Beach man in his speech announcing that 7.1 million people signed up for health care. Sean Casey, a software engineer, wrote an email to the President thanking him for the ACA.

The President said “Sean Casey from Solana Beach, California, always made sure to cover his family on the private market, but pre-existing medical conditions meant his annual tab was over $30,000. This year, the Casey family’s premiums will fall from over $30,000 to under $9,000.”

Disgraced former San Diego Police officer Anthony Arevalos is still making headlines. Yesterday a federal judge said that there is enough evidence to put the SDPD, the department, on trial for engaging in what plaintiff lawyers say is “a systematic cover-up of Arevalos” sexual assaults. In 2011 Arevalos was convicted of felony and misdemeanor sexual battery, asking for brides and assault and battery. His case involved five-victims.

At 1:30 PM in Chula Vista’s court Jose Ascencio Gomez is scheduled to be arraigned for stabbing his ex-wife over and over again during a fight at her house.

This morning at 11:00 students form Escondido Charter High School and Heritage Charter School will try to build the world’s biggest peanut butter and jelly sandwich. They’ll be doing this at the high school at 1868 East Valley Parkway in Escondido.
