AM Briefing from Bowlersdesk.com for May 28, 2014

Tonight at 5:30 protesters calling for the release of Marine Corps sergeant in Mexican prison will rally at the San Ysidro border crossing for his release. Andrew Tahmooressi was arrested while crossing into Mexico with a shotgun, a rifle, a handgun and ammunition in his car.

Guns are extremely illegal in Mexico. The American consulate in Tijuana on its web site says “Don’t bring firearms or ammunition across the border into Mexico. Don’t carry a knife, even a small pocketknife, on your person in Mexico. You may become one of dozens of U.S. Citizens who are arrested each month for unintentionally violating Mexico’s strict weapons laws.”

However Tahmooressi says he crossed the border by mistake. Today Tahmooressi is having a hearing in Tijuana about his case. The Mexican legal system is very different than the American, and the process can be long.

Last night San Diego Unified District Board of Education approved a new early retirement program. 471 teachers are eligible for it and the Board says it’ll save nearly $30 million over the next five years. Of the 471 teachers eligible about a quarter have signed up for it. Most have until Friday to decide if they want the early retirement, however summer school teachers have until their last summer workday to decide. Teachers that have been with the district for 5-years and are 55-years-old with 5-years of credit in the state teachers retirement system, or those 50 to 54 with 30-years retirement credits are eligible.

Proposition 13 is on topic at the San Diego County Taxpayers Association early morning forum this morning at 7:30. Prop 13 keeps property taxes low by setting the tax rate on the value of property at the time the property was purchased. Many blame prop. 13 on the state’s education funding problems, because schools get much their funding from property taxes.

At 9:00 AM at the County Administration Center Room 358 fracking is taking center stage at a public forum. Fracking or “induced hydraulic fracturing” is when thousands of gallons of fluid-chemicals are injected into geological structures at pressures high enough to break or fracture the geology and release the oil deposited there. It’s an extremely controversial method. The public is welcome, however no placards or signs are allowed in.

At 10:00 AM Balboa Park’s centennial celebration is the topic of a press conference at Balboa Park’s reflecting pool. They boast that it’ll be a “major announcement”.

This morning at 10:00 the Chief Patrol Agent for the San Diego sector Border patrol is honoring the 90th anniversary of the U.S. Border Patrol by reading the names of agents killed in the line of duty.

Embattled Sweetwater Union High School District is on topic tonight at 6:00 at Chula Vista’s City Hall. Chula Vista Mayor Cheryl Cox is hosting the forum.

And finally tonight at 6:30 the candidates for District Attorney are talking to the National Latina Business Women Association of San Diego and the La Raza Lawyers at the University of San Diego’s Shiley Theatre.
