Eight Marine recruits are diagnosed with meningitis. They are all at Naval Medical Center, San Diego for treatment and testing. The tests will determine if it is bacterial or viral. Regardless, all are being isolated.

Several San Diego City Council candidates file their nominating papers.

David Alvarez, Myrtle Cole and Lorie Zapf all got the 100 required signatures needed to nominate themselves for re-election.

Alvarez will run for reelection in Distract 8 and so far he only has one opponent, retired iron worker Valley Coleman III

In District 4, Cole is up against Lemon Grove School District Trustee Blanca Lopez Brown, real estate agent Tony Villafranca and former district policy adviser Bruce Williams.
