Cathy Ives is mad as hell and she’s not going to take it anymore. What she’s upset about is trash and irresponsible behavior at Mission Beach.

“I am done with the amount of drinking on the beach,” said Ives, who cleans up beach trash daily from the jetty to Belmont Park oceanfront.

“Friday morning I picked up more than 100 glass beer bottles. Sunday I picked up more than 50 glass beer bottles at Belmont Park. And there were five to seven illegal fires still burning, strewn with liquor bottles, glass, aluminum and plastic. It is too much.”

Noting glass bottles of any kind are forbidden everywhere on the beach any time, Ives added bottles and trash from fires are just a part of overall beach pollution.

Ives tried reporting beach clean-up issues on the City’s Get It Done App, but was not satisfied with the response.“They (city) said it needs to go to the police,” she said. “But there’s no place to put it, I reported it under illegal dumping, and they (police) said it needs to go someplace else.”

Ives was told at a Mission Beach Town Council meeting by a police representative that SDPD does not have the resources to do beach cleanup.

Ives has been complaining to various government agencies about beach cleanup problems for the past 18 months and continues to document the issues providing photos. “I have a whole Facebook album just devoted to this,” she said.

Ives is requesting that the City enforce its laws requiring:

• No drinking on the beach;

• No smoking on the beach;

• No glass bottles on the beach;

• No fires directly on sand on the beach;

• Enforcement of littering laws.

“Public safety is our top priority,” said José Ysea, supervising public information officer for City of San Diego. “During the summer months, the City of San Diego beefs up police and lifeguard presence in our beach areas. With 17 miles of coastline our personnel work diligently to enforce all laws and rules along our beaches and bays.

“As in any of our other communities, we not only encourage, but rely on the public to be our eyes and ears when they see or hear something wrong. If they witness anyone in distress or see a dangerous situation, we ask that they call 9-1-1 immediately,” Ysea said.

“If they have non-emergency issues, we ask that they use our Get-it-Done app available on Android and Apple devices, as well as at sandiego.gov/getitdone,” Ysea said. “As part of Mayor Kevin Faulconer’s CleanSD initiative, we now have clean-up crews working 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This has sped up our response time for reports relating to trash and debris.”

Ives has some recommendations for how beach enforcement should be improved. 

“The number one thing is better signage,” Ives said. “I am advocating they enforce the ordinances and put up big signs saying, ‘No drinking, no glass. no styrofoam.’”

Ives also cautioned that Mission Beach is not being patrolled at the right times.

“The police need to start patrolling on the sand from the jetty to north Mission Beach from 11 p.m. to 4 a.m., not 6 a.m.,” she argued. “That is ‘not’ when the action is happening. They should be giving tickets, fines.

Pointing out styrofoam is now banned because it’s not biodegradable, Ives noted the material is winding up in boogie boards nonetheless. “There is no enforcement,” she said. “Stores should have stopped selling those, as well as styrofoam ice chests.”

Concerning plastic straws, which state law is gradually phasing out requiring them to be requested in restaurants, Ives noted, “There are more straws on the beach now than ever.”

Concerning fires, Ives said: “It’s illegal to put them directly in the sand. They need to be in a portable device or in a fire pit. Due to the still-warm fires, I have had to ‘encircle' the fires with bottles or toys.There is nobody to put out the illegal still-burning fires.”

Ives noted the jetty has 10 illegal fire pits strewn with trash. “I can't even tell you how bad Bonita Point is,” she said. “Between the people sleeping in cars, the drunks sleeping on the beach … it is awful.”

Ives added the Mission Beach jetty has become especially troublesome.

“Rats are out in full force at the jetty,” she warned. “You got rid of the cats that killed the rats. Do you know that hepatitis A can be spread this way?”

Worst of all, said Ives: “There is broken glass everywhere – on the beach, in the parking lots, in the picnic areas, on the boardwalk. Another resident in less than a week picked up more than 200 pounds of glass, mainly beer bottles in less than a mile. He has been living here for years and states it is the worst he has ever seen.”

Added Ives: “The trashcans are filled with glass bottles. The tide line is strewn with glass bottles and cigarettes, food wrappers, and clothing. I’ve washed more than 900 beach towels, some from hotels, and blankets left on the beach and donated them, as well as 115 beach toys, all left behind.”

Responding to clean-up complaints from Mission Beach residents, District 2 Councilmember Dr. Jen Campbell said: “Keeping our beaches clean is a prime concern for my office. We’ve been in contact with Environmental Services to ensure that the additional Clean SD money that was approved this year in the city’s budget is focused on our beaches and boardwalks.”

HOW Dr,UzoyaTHE GREAT SPELL CASTER HELP BRING MY EX LOVER. . My names are Jamison Patel from United States. Great Dr Uzoya is really powerful and knows how to do his job perfectly. If not for him i could not imagine what would have happened. My ex was always picking up an argument with me and was always beating me. He started acting strange and funny and left me for no cause for another girl. I thought all hope was gone. I searched for help on the internet and i came across Dr Uzoya. I saw so many testimonies about him. I was delighted and i contacted him on his email and told him what was going on. He laughed and assured me to calm down that he will help me and that my ex will come back begging me. He did his work and cast the spell for me and in 3 days time, my ex came apologizing just as he told me. Today we both live together and we are even more in love than how we use to be before he left.

I’ve been seeing my fiance for over three year and yet the physicality is somewhat lacking. We see one another roughly every 5 days, she says she doesn’t want to rush in and neither do I, although I would like to see some progression. There is some future faking on her part which I am agreeable to, but then not coming up with firm arrangements. I know she’s been out of a long term relationship for a four years now and that it ended ‘messily’ in her words. I do not know the details since she has not felt able to tell me, citing that she ‘needs to be in the right mood for our marriage. I have not pushed this too much however as she clearly doesn’t feel able to talk about it. This then coupled with the lack of total physicality would seem to indicate she is not ready totally for a relationship. She says I need to be patient, but I was wondering whether she is really being honest with me and our relationship because i loved her so much and her past seems to take her away from me. I knew a friend who had similar situation and asked for advise where i ended up with a love spell with Dr DEGBONO from degbonotemple@gmail.com.. I had no regret at all taken the step but its improved my love life and we got married expecting our first child any moment soon.. Whatsapphim on 14696301798

Hi everybody. I recently saw a testimony about Dr ISIKOLO in a blog I visit for relationship and dating counseling problems because i had been having serious issues with my boyfriend and we had been dating for six months, he just suddenly changed, he wasn't returning my calls, he started cheating, he was hurting me in many ways i never thought possible and I just thought I should try it maybe out of desperation of some sort and I contacted Dr ISIKOLO. At first everything felt dreamy and unbelievable, his consultations and solution was a little bit easy and strange and I was scared a little cause I heard read and heard lots of stories of fake spell casters, scams and i never really believed in magic. I played along with a little hope and and faith and I sent some few stuffs after everything and it worked like a miracle, everything went to a while new direction,it was and is amazing.. I guess it was all good faith that made me read That particular post that faithful day.. I hope he could help other people too like he did me.. I did a little and I got everything I wanted and wished for my husband and truly he returned back to me after 48 hours as Dr Isikolo assured me. my family and my life back.

I HAVE MY EX BACK

Many people have wrote articles of how they were helped by a spell caster but I am very grateful to this great spell caster who brought my ex husband back to me. This testimony is a true story and my name is Monika Simun. When i came in contact with this man was also through a testimony written about him and i have also encountered many testimonies about how he has been helping others with their life. To get back with an ex is one of the most inner most feeling many people would love to experience especially as those memories with our ex always cloud our mind when someone else does some of those things our ex used to do. I was a single parent for almost 6 years and though my ex husband was far away from my kids i still wish someday he will return back to me. This spell doctor i encountered known as DR ISIKOLO helped me with my wishes and i am happy to say that i am back with my ex husband and i am very happy sharing the testimony with everyone so that they too can meet this great doctor and solve their problems. I don't know what others might feel about getting their ex back in their life but i always know there is a blessing in disguise with just a single re-connection with an ex. If you want to successfully get back with your ex, contact this great spell caster at his Whatsapp 2348133261196 or email isikolosolutionhome@gmail.com and share an awesome testimony too just like me

My name is Barbara Vanja My husband and I have been married for about 6yrs now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone else. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the internet one day, I came across a website that suggested Dr Isikolo can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and told him my problems and he told me what to do and i did it and he did a spell for me 48 hours later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since Dr Isikolo is the best online spell caster that is powerful and genuine. If you have any problem contact him and i guarantee you that he will help you.
