    San Diego Community Newspaper Group’s new publication, College Times Courier, debuts Sept. 20

    San Diego Community Newspaper Group (SDCNG) continues its 2019 growth spurt with the addition of a new publication — the College Times Courier. The new community newspaper will cover news from the College Area and Rolando and will publish on the third Friday of every month. “I feel this is a good addition to our community coverage of the east side of San Diego. It bridges the gap nicely between the Mission Times Courier to the north of Interstate 8 and east with La Mesa Courier,” said SDCNG publisher Julie Main. “There are a lot of school districts and shared interests between these well-established communities.” The College Times Courier was created in response to community members and business leaders from the College Area who approached Main about returning coverage and distribution of the Mission Times Courier to the College Area. The Mission Times Courier had previously distributed into College Area under publisher Jim Madaffer before he sold the paper to San Diego Community Newspaper Network (SDCNN) publisher David Mannis, who then consolidated coverage and distribution to the Navajo neighborhoods of Grantville, Allied Gardens, Del Cerro and San Carlos. Mission Times Courier, along with most of SDCNN’s publications, were acquired by SDCNG in March. Rather than extend coverage by Mission Times Courier, Main decided that College Area deserved a publication of its own. “We approached the San Diego Community Newspaper Group to discuss the possibility of extending the territory of one of their other papers (Mission Times Courier, La Mesa Courier) to include the College Area,” wrote Collee Area Community Planning Board president Jose Renoso in a column for the inaugural issue of College Times Courier. “Fortuitously, the publisher felt that we are a unique community and the fact that we are currently undertaking a community-generated community plan update to create and implement the vision that the community has for itself, warranted a paper dedicated to the community.” College Times Courier’s editorial team will be led by Jeff Clemetson who is currently editor of Mission Times Courier and La Mesa Courier. “I love the fact that College Area communities are nestled between the regions I already cover. There’s some continuity there, but it has always been obvious to me that College Area has its own characteristics — and now that I’ve been on the beat for the last few weeks, I’ve been excited to discover a community rich with new stories to write about and share with readers,” Clemetson said. Handling advertising sales is Lauren Vernon, who was hired in August. Vernon is originally from Fairfax, Va. and moved to San Diego in 2014. She has an extensive background in sales, most recently at Zoom Media. For more information about advertising in College Times Courier, email Vernon at lauren@sdnews.com.

    As part of the Global Climate Walkout on Friday, Sept. 20, the ReWild Mission Bay coalition, in conjunction with San Diego 350 and the UC Natural Reserve System, joined with students from Mission Bay High School at Kendall-Frost Marsh Reserve off Pacific Beach Drive for a "March to the Marsh" walkout for climate action and climate policy. "Our climate crisis affects everyone, no matter their age, socio-economic background or political preference,” said Mission Bay High student Vanessa Cascante, who spoke at Friday’s rally, and who is also a member of the school's Eco Club. “As a youth, my hope is we will seize this opportunity to unite under one common goal in the march for a climate-secure future." ReWild Mission Bay coalition members, neighbors, and climate advocates marched from De Anza Cove Park on Friday morning, met with students and teachers from Mission Bay High and San Diego City College, and then continued to Kendall-Frost Marsh where there was a brief presentation at 1 p.m. San Diego Audubon conservation director Andrew Meyer said the March to the Marsh was an opportunity to show solidarity with the generation that will have to live with the climate decisions made today, both good and bad. "This is a priceless opportunity to walk with Mission Bay High School students as they push us all towards projects just like ReWild Mission Bay, which have the capacity to acknowledge, adapt to, and mitigate the coming climate crisis," Meyer said. UC San Diego Natural Reserve System reserves manager Isabelle Kay noted the symbolic, and practical, benefits of Kendall-Frost Marsh serving as the destination of the March to the Marsh. "Students have the opportunity to study the science of this rare and dynamic ecosystem, and be inspired to communicate their knowledge," she said. "But they can also see the imminent dangers of global climate change, as the daily highest high tides foretell the future effects of long-term inundation of our coasts resulting from sea-level rise." Mission Bay High science and biology teacher Steve Walters, who serves as faculty advisor to the Mission Bay Eco Club, noted how his students' concern and advocacy motivate him. "My students all know I often say, 'If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem.' It's very inspiring to see my students are part of the solution." Cascante added, "As a representative of my generation, I feel it is my civic duty to address the climate crisis as what it should be – our first priority." The ReWild Mission Bay Coalition supporting the March to the Marsh included the California Native Plant Society, Citizens Coordinate for Century 3 (C3), Climate Action Campaign, Environmental Center of San Diego, Friends of Famosa Slough, Friends of Mission Bay Marshes, Friends of Rose Canyon, Friends of Rose Creek, Outdoor Outreach, Rose Creek Watershed Alliance, San Diego 350, San Diego Audubon Society, San Diego City College Audubon, San Diego Coastkeeper, Sierra Club San Diego, Society for the Advancement of Chicanos and Native American Scientists (SACNAS), Stay Cool for Grandkids, Sustainability Matters, San Diego County Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation, Unite Here! Local 30, and WildCoast. For more on the San Diego Audubon Society, visit SanDiegoAudubon.org.

    I was lucky to research how love spell can mend broken relationships on Quora. My research leads me to dr. Wakina who through his powerful spell saved a lot of relationships and marriages. I didn’t mind but sent him an emotional and mentally drained and broken feeling via (dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com) I expected the spiritual father to cleanse my partner of all negativity towards our union because it’s depressing when you’re always at fault, everything you do is wrong in his eyes and he compares you to his exes. He blames me for being a hindrance to his success or where he wants to be at his age in life, he looks at me hatefully because of his own insecurity and guilt which I don’t even know. I was scared of him to be not pleased with me.

    It’s all story now after a love spell from the grand master of spells Dr. Wakina’s intervention. No more fears, negativity, lack, depression and hate in my marriage, they were renewed with LOVE. All thanks to Quora site and Dr. Wakina.

    Brittany Merrill Yeng, co-founder and owner of Skrewball Whiskey, says her husband Steve has always had an affinity for two things: peanut butter and whiskey. “He also has a gift for flavor profiles and mixology,” said Brittany, born and raised in OB. “His favorite thing to do is create unexpected combinations. And peanut butter is like his ketchup. He puts it on everything.” That’s how Steve Yeng first came up with Ocean Beach’s trendy new drink – peanut butter whiskey. Brittany says she was actually sitting at the OB Noodle House Bar 1502, a restaurant started by Steve, when her husband first mixed the sweet and smooth drink. “The peanut butter whiskey was something he created in house to really push whiskey at the restaurant and make it accessible to people,” said Brittany. “And it’s hard to find people who like whiskey who don’t also like peanut butter. That’s what I noticed was unique about this drink, that it draws all sorts of people to it. I saw an opportunity there.” In July of 2018, Brittany began to build the Skrewball brand, designing the signature black sheep logo –representing peanut butter whiskey as an “endearing outlier” in the whiskey world – and sorting through all the legal “nuts and bolts.” “The Skrewball name is one of our favorite parts about the business,” said Brittany. “It has the word ‘krew’ in it, albeit technically spelled wrong. Friendship and coming together is something that’s at the heart of the product itself. It’s about creating a ‘krew’ of both whiskey drinkers and wannabe whiskey drinkers.” Skrewball Peanut Butter Whiskey is a 70-proof, vegan and gluten free beverage that smells like praline pecan caramel swirl ice cream and tastes like a liquid peanut butter cup. The drink was recently awarded a double gold medal for “Best Flavored Whiskey” at the 2018 New York World Wine and Spirits Competition, and won gold for “Best in Class” at the same year’s Los Angeles Spirits Competition. On their website, Skrewball gives recipes for Peanut Butter Whiskey cocktails, such as Salted Caramel Pretzel and Peanut Colada. “We didn’t just slap a peanut butter label on a bottle, it really does taste like peanut butter,” said Brittany. “When people hear the name, eyes roll because they assume we’re following a trend. But once they smell it and try it, they really start to believe in the product.” Now, whiskey fans from all over the U.S. are going to get the chance to taste and believe in peanut butter-flavored whiskey. Skrewball has partnered with Infinium Spirits to distribute their nutty nectar bottles nationwide. While before it was impossible to purchase Skrewball Peanut Butter Whiskey outside the Golden State, in just two months the brand has expanded to 30 U.S. states and counting. Brittany says Skrewball plans to be available in liquor stores across all 50 states by the fall. “We fully committed ourselves knowing Skrewball wouldn’t be an overnight success,” said Brittany. “But we’ve moved along faster than expected. It’s even been faster that what’s usually advised. Alcohol is primarily a local business but, as soon as we launched, people from all over the country reached out, thrilled that we had figured out a way to put their two favorite things together — whiskey and peanut butter.” Because alcohol is regulated at a state level, Brittany says the process to expand Skrewball throughout the U.S. has been a trial. But local approval has been abounding. Skrewball Peanut Butter Whiskey can be found at 50 locations in San Diego, including the OB Noodle House, Mothers Ocean Beach, Surf Lodge, and Wonderland Ocean Pub. More locations can be found on skrewballwhiskey.com.

    Residents waiting, and waiting, for Bermuda Avenue beach access repairs

    The Bermuda Avenue beach access stairs have been closed for two years.
    The Bermuda Avenue beach access stairs have been closed for two years.
    slideshow
    Ocean Beach residents are becoming increasingly restive about proposed stairway and seawall repairs to restore Bermuda Avenue coastal access that some feel is long overdue. The Bermuda staircase/seawall, which provides the only access to the pocket beach below, was damaged during winter storms in 2015-16. Subsequently, City staff closed the stairwell due to tidal action that eroded the lower stairway foundation causing the lower stairs to collapse. The community was told then by the City that staff was working through the design and environmental process, and that a request had been made for construction funding for the Bermuda repair project from the Regional Park Improvement Fund.  Back then, OB was told the project “should be 100% funded,” and that a bid and award to a company, as well as construction, would each “take about three months.” The projected timeline for having the stairway fully reconstructed was determined to be “late spring of 2018, if not earlier.” Fast forward to September 2019, and the reconstruction project has yet to begin. “I’m one of those people who feel it’s time to get the project started,” said OB resident Tom Roeber, who lives near the Bermuda stairs. “I’d like to see at least a temporary fix, simple stairs to get to the platform so people are not crawling down the cliffs and risking getting hurt. All you need is a stairway to go about 12 feet.” OB Planning Board member Kevin Hastings, speaking for himself, agreed. “They (City) spend years in the design of some of these projects,” he said. “When Bermuda (stairwell) collapsed in 2016, they got on it real quick. But it’s still in design.” “The project is currently in the design stage, and we are estimating that construction would begin in the summer of 2021 and finish in the winter of 2021,” said City spokesman Alec Phillipp. “However, this is subject to change pending the design and required environmental review.”  The City has estimated that replacing the existing Bermuda stairway, and either repairing or replacing the existing seawall, would cost $1.5 million, $600,000 for construction. The City added the repair project would also “provide a complete assessment of the factors causing and contributing to the failure of the stairway, with the aim of either repairing or replacing the structure as appropriate.”  The repair project also includes assessment of the adjacent seawall, given the two structures are connected, and the seawall has been undermined and repaired in the past, the City said. “We all know people are going to use it (stairwell), so why not make it at least accessible?” asked Roeber. “If they (City) give me permission, I’ll build it,” he quipped. “Hand me a few ladders — I’ll put them there.” In Hasting’s view, the City’s summer construction moratorium, which forbids coastal construction work between Memorial and Labor days, ought to be waived for repair projects like that needed at Bermuda.  “What the summer moratorium means is that, when they finally get to work on this thing, the king tides and the waves come and you can’t build a beach-access stairwell,” Hastings said. “In the wintertime, it’s not gonna happen. They really need to make an exception to the beach moratorium for these things.” Concluded Hastings, “People are getting impatient. It’s gone way too long.”
