AM Briefing from Bowlersdesk.com for September 2, 2013

Today is Labor Day so government offices are closed. But that doesn’t mean that there isn’t a lot to do here in America’s finest city. There is a bunch of fun to be had all day long.

First at 9:00 head over to the Embarcadero in downtown and check out the Festival of Tall Ships and the U.S. Sandsculpting Challenge and 3D Art Exposition.

Both are having there last day.

The ships are docked over by the Maritime Museum of San Diego and the Sandsculpting is just south of the ships on the B street pier.

In Escondido City Hall at 10:00 AM Unions, church groups, Escondido’s Deputy Mayor Olga Diaz, and San Diego County Democratic Party Chairwoman Francine Busby are rallying for Labor Day.

Also at 10:00 AM a non-Labor Day rally is happening in San Diego’s Balboa Park. The nonprofit Improving Birth is holding one of 150 nationwide rallies meant to raise awareness about improvements needed in American maternity care.

And finally tonight at 5:00 the Chaldean American Association is hosting Babylon Day. It’s a festival honoring El Cajon’s Chaldean community. The food and fun will be in the Prescott Promenade at 201 East Main Street in El Cajon.

AM Briefing from Bowlersdesk.com for August 23, 2013

Today at 1:00 the deal between San Diego’s Mayor Bob Filner, city officials, and private attorneys will be presented to the City Council for approval in a closed session meeting. San Diego’s now infamous mayor is neck-deep in sexual harassment allegations and his former Communications Director is suing him. The deal is thought to include Filner’s resignation, and an arrangement regarding both the city’s liability and Filner’s. Everyone expects the city council to approve the deal … the details of which will be made public later in the afternoon.

Assuming Filner steps down the city council will pick a day for a special election within the next 90 days. Several candidates are starting to emerge. Check out the special podcast here on BowlersDesk.com for more on who could be San Diego’s next mayor with the President of the political action group Run Woman Run.

There are two sentencings worth noting today … both in San Diego’s downtown courthouse.

First at 9:00 AM Nancy Mendoza Moreno is being sentenced for helping a Mexican kidnapping gang called Los Palillos. She would lure men to various locations around San Diego to be kidnapped and held for ransom.

Then at 1:30 this afternoon Zachary Tenorio is going to be sentenced for killing his naval officer brother during an alcohol fueled fight.

At 8:00 this morning the Boxer Amphibious Ready Group and 2,400 Marines from Camp Pendleton will deploy for the Western Pacific and Middle East.

And finally at 11:00 am about 250 tons af sand will be dumped at the B Street Pier in downtown for Labor Day’s U.S. Sand Sculpting Challenge and 3D Art Exhibition.
