The eight-team, eight-day, double-elimination tournament is being co-hosted by the University of Mount Olive and the Town of Cary, North Carolina, back in Cary after a one-year move last season to Grand Prairie, Texas. Third-seeded UC San Diego ended another tremendous campaign as repeat West Region champion, at 43-17 overall. Fourth-seeded Southern New Hampshire, the East Region champion out of Manchester, N.H., improved to 41-16. The Penmen face elimination again on Thursday, May 31, against fifth-seeded Augustana. UC San Diego trailed 7-0 after the first three frames, but scored in three straight innings from the fifth through the seventh, to make a game of it again. All the while, senior closer Cameron Kurz (Encinitas/La Costa Canyon HS) kept the Tritons in contention with a career-long 4.2 shutout innings of relief. He faced the minimum 14 batters over that stretch, with no hits or walks allowed, and six strikeouts. The Tritons went down in order in their opening half for the second straight night, before Tom Blandini golfed a leadoff home run for the Penmen, his second on the year and the first to right field of the tournament. Junior first baseman Tyler Durna got over and dove to his right to corral Dakota Mulcay's ground ball, got up and flipped to starting pitcher Jack Rupe, Jr. (San Marcos/Mission Hills HS), for the third out. Durna doubled through the right side with one gone in the second, but like Tuesday night, UC San Diego could not get him around, a strikeout and fly out ending the frame. Back-to-back one-out singles had the Penmen threatening for more in their second, and a three-run blast down the left field line by junior shortstop Kyle Pangallo, also his second of the year, made it a 4-0 deficit early.  La Jolla Veterinary Hospital to host 5th annual ‘Paws & Pints La Jolla’ fundraiser  At 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 7, The Lot will host the fifth annual “Paws & Pints La Jolla” fundraisers. All of the event’s proceeds go to The Rancho Coastal Humane Society and The FACE Foundation. “This event is in our community, for the community, and it has evolved into something La Jolla looks forward to year after year,” said event founder Stephanie Coolidge of La Jolla Veterinary Hospital. The fundraiser features a live auction, silent auction and raffle with items such as VIP Padres tickets, surfboards, art from local La Jolla artists, countless La Jolla restaurant, and hotel, winery, museum and brewery packages. Local La Jolla merchants donate jewelry, museum pieces, high-end apparel and gift card packages second to none. There will be a  "Wine Grab" featured at the event and a photo contest for you and your four-legged friend on the red carpet. The Rancho Coastal Humane Society is responsible for finding homes for thousands of animals all around San Diego County. The FACE Foundation is a non-profit that provides financial assistance for San Diego animal owners who are unable to afford the cost of their pet’s life-saving emergency veterinary care. F.O.C.A.S. stands for “Friends of County Animal Shelters” and was started in La Jolla by La Jolla residents Peggy Howell and Sue Geller in 1982. The program is now managed by Rancho Coastal Humane Society. Join La Jolla Veterinary Hospital in making a huge impact on the animal-welfare community right here in the Village.

    Magical mermaid lures visitors to Sunset Cliffs; How did this nymph come to grace Ross Rock?

    Every now and then our perceptions of reality are tested, and the mythical world becomes actualized. Each time this happens, the little child within us breaks free from adult confinements, and we begin to see the world differently. This is the exact phenomenon going on right now in Point Loma with the emergence of a mermaid. We are calling her Mishell, meaning “God-like,” for her beauty and mystical powers have navigated people to her throne atop Ross Rock off the coast of Sunset Cliffs since Memorial Day weekend. Is it coincidence that May gray vanished at the mere glance of her green tail and flowing locks? We think not. Maybe it is her siren songs soothing the souls of visitors, or her awe-inspiring capacity to bring consistently firing waves, but the vibe around the cliffs have been both peaceful and joyous. “I think [she] is a piece of art. [She] definitely fits the OB vibe. I just want to know how [she] got up there,” said Greg Clinnin, a Pacific Beach resident. Visitors fear for her future. Mark Eimer, a San Diego resident, said, “I think the city will eventually take it down, but they should leave it up for a little to let people enjoy [her].” “It’s great for tourism and [she] is art. We have lived here for 32 years and have never been to the cliffs, but talk of this mermaid drew us in,” Randy Sundberg said. “To people who want to take [her] down or feel this is vandalism, I say live a little.” The Peninsula Beacon was able to confirm with park rangers that there are no plans to take Mishell down, and we couldn’t be more relieved. While mermaids are known for their beauty and enchantment, it comes in the form of vanity, and any test at their ego is detrimental to both people and their environment. Among many powers, mermaids can manipulate both the ocean and weather to either our benefit or detriment. Urban legend tells the terrifying tales of entire ships lost at sea to the goddesses. They also possess telepathy with marine life, giving them a plethora of back-up if needed. One shouldn’t worry too much though, as the true nature of mermaids are both loving and curious. While we don’t know the exact reason for Mishell’s sudden appearance, she may be attempting to learn about us as much as we are understanding her. “I think this is a political statement,” said Roger Warren, of Point Loma. “Is it just a coincidence that Starbucks, whose mascot is a green mermaid, is having racial sensitivity training the same day [she] goes up? I don’t think so.” We do not think that Mishell has any political affiliations or influence, but she may be trying to transcend our psyches. “I wouldn’t call it art. I wouldn’t call it vandalism. I think that someone was just trying to bring some joy to the world,” Lucie Leonard said, a Point Loma local of 15 years. Leonard was lucky enough to spot Mishell scaling the side of the 50-foot rock with assistance from her “servants” around 4:45 p.m. on Memorial Day. She said one of the men must have free-climbed the side and dropped a rope ladder for her highness to reach her seat. Leonard snapped three photos of this remarkable conclave. Mishell isn’t the first to perch aloft the notorious rock. In 2010, the numbers “2010” stood proud. Before that, in 2006, a peace sign was put up, only to be stolen and returned to the roof of the OB Hostel on Newport Avenue. Other royalty to grace the top of the formation includes a pterodactyl, an Easter Island head replica, a Christmas tree, and a toilet with a Raiders fan wedged inside. Whoever was brave enough to assist Mishell on her conquest remains unknown, and their identities are as mysterious as she is magical. Rumors continue to spread including the idea that a group of tourists from Arizona not only helped Mishell, but the others as well, but the Peninsula Beacon was not able to confirm. Other thoughts include those similar to Gary Wasserman’s, who said on the Point Loma Connections Facebook page, “It is like a secret artist or society of artful people that have installed these sculptures both very large and small on top of this rock over many years, that is otherwise unclimbable.” However Mishell got there, she remains, to kick off the summer and bring us closer to her home she holds so dearly, the ocean. With the potential of her departure any day at any time, take some time out of your day to witness her in all her glory. Mermaid mythology - The mermaid is one of the most popular figures in world folklore. Her characteristic appearance is as a nubile young girl, with long hair and a fish tail. Unlike the other part-human, part-animal creatures of folklore, mermaids have been the object of many sightings up to the present day. - The most famous mermaid to have been captured, the “mermaid of Amboina,” was found off the coast of Borneo in 1754 and is said to have lived in captivity for four days. She refused to eat, and made plaintive sounds like those of a mouse. - Where do the myths of mermaids come from? Somewhere in the later Middle Ages, the fish-woman mermaid supplanted the bird-woman siren as the creature believed to lure sailors astray, although in many languages words based on “siren” continued to be used for the fish-woman. source: encyclopedia.com

    City Council votes against boardwalk ban for motorized scooters

    Shock, anger and relief for some was the local reaction to the City Council’s 6-3 vote May 22 against an emergency ordinance prohibiting motorized scooters on coastal boardwalks. District 2 Councilmember Lorie Zapf, who proposed the ordinance, was joined by District 1 Councilmember Barbara Bry and District 5 Councilmember Mark Kersey in supporting a scooter boardwalk ban.  Council members Chris Ward, Myrtle Cole, Scott Sherman, Chris Cate, David Alvarez and Georgette Gomez all turned thumbs down on the proposal. They argued either that they weren’t convinced of its necessity, or they felt the issue hadn’t yet been properly vetted. Sherman from District 7 said the problem was more about irresponsible people riding, than about the vehicles being ridden. “I am disappointed that my colleagues failed to realize the tremendous public safety problem electric scooters present on the boardwalk,” said Zapf. “I intend to continue working with the police department, the lifeguard service and community leaders to refine the proposal so that it can gather majority support on the council.” “We won’t be weighing in on the topic,” said San Diego Fire-Rescue spokesperson Monica Munoz. “We enforce the muni codes and other laws when they are enacted.” Asked if the boardwalk is considered a sidewalk, San Diego Police Department spokesperson Lt. Brent Williams, answered: “Some parts are sidewalks and already prohibited. Some parts are a Class 1 bike way. That’s what the item at City Council was about.” Of helmets, Williams said: “They are required for any rider who uses a scooter, age is not a factor. It is enforced and a number of citations have been written for this specific violation citywide.” Concerning enforcement of the 8 mph speed limit on the boardwalk, Williams said: “Scooters do go faster than 8 mph, and 8 mph is the posted limit. Enforcement of this is also done on the boardwalk, and will continue to be enforced by SDPD.” There was considerable agreement from Zapf’s constituency in Mission and Pacific beaches and Mission Bay, that motorized scooters on the boardwalk are a safety threat that needs to be addressed. “I was disgusted,” said Scott Chipman, a 43-year PB resident. “The presentation on safety issues could not have been more convincing showing case after case of dangerous conditions on the boardwalk … Multiple videos of scooter crashes causing injuries were shown. The two City Council members who have beach boardwalks in their districts pleadings were ignored. The recommendations of police and life guard chief were ignored.” Concurred Marcie Beckett, of PB, “Shame on City Council. The bay walk used to be a safe place for families to bring their little kids to ride bikes or roller skate. But not anymore due to the advent of motorized scooters zooming along without the skill or time to react to the unpredictable little ones. The City gets no revenue from the motorized scooter rentals, not even sales tax, but the taxpayers are on the hook for the cost of police enforcement, emergency response and negligence lawsuits from people who will be injured due to the reckless decision made today by City Council.” Citing numerous complaints from his staff and hotel guests, Bill Allen, Crystal Pier Hotel chairman, said: “They are left daily in our hotel driveway locked, blocking our gate access. Guests as well as those walking along the boardwalk now have to dodge riders of these in congested times… The council members who voted against this proposed ban do not represent any coastal areas and, most likely, have not walked on the boardwalk lately.” A counter perspective was offered by Circulate San Diego, a regional nonprofit promoting public and non-motorized travel. “Since the introduction of dockless bike and scooter share earlier this year, San Diegans have begun to use active transportation more than ever before,” said Maya Rosas, the group’s policy director. “Circulate San Diego supports the use of dockless bike and scooter share as a form of transportation and spoke at City Council in opposition to the proposed ban. San Diego has embraced this innovative and green technology. A vote to ban scooters in our iconic boardwalks would have been a step in the wrong direction on the City’s road to get more people walking, biking, scooting, and taking transit.” Said longtime PB community Planner Chris Olson: “Our leaders should support and promote alternative methods of transportation and find safe and effective methods to employ them. This emergency ordinance is a knee-jerk reaction to an important public safety issue, and it is the wrong approach. Yes, some people recklessly speed on scooters, skateboards, bikes, etc. But a blanket ban of motorized scooters on one section of the boardwalk is not a rational solution.” Added Olson: “This ordinance targets a method of transportation rather than the true issue, which is speed. Will they ban electric bikes next? Every time I see people on these scooters they exude gleeful revelation. Don’t take that away.”

    Although La Jolla has been clouded by the “May gray” marine layer in recent mornings, by midday the sun is out in full effect. While it may seem counter-intuitive to head inland to escape the heat, at the right time of day, the combination of fresh water and elevation breezes can spell utter relief. Possessing two of San Diego’s most frequented trails, the Ho Chi Minh and Broken Hill trails (although Broken Hill is undergoing construction), La Jollans take great pride in ownership of these astounding coastal views. With spring coming to a close, and summer right around the corner, the La Jolla Village News has provided a guide to some of the best day hikes in or near San Diego. While some of these entail a decent amount of driving, but at the end of the day, one’s satisfaction after completing these hikes can be worth much more than time or money. ‘Ho Chi Minh’ trail to Black’s Beach (1 mile) It may be seen as a right-of-passage at some point during any La Jollan’s life, Ho Chi Minh is arguably one of the more popular trails in San Diego. There is no fee to enter the trail, but it can be a bit difficult to find. Turn on to La Jolla Farms Road, continue for nearly a mile until cars/hikers/surfers begin to appear. There is a break in a wrought iron-and-wooden fence, with a falling rock sign, that opens up into a trail. Simply follow the trail passed razor ferns, across a makeshift bridge and scurry down the rope to hit the beach. If not comfortable climbing down the winding trail, it is advised to take one of the main fire roads prior to the trailhead, down to the beach. Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve trails Perhaps some of the most idyllic coastal vistas in California, the trails at Torrey Pines can be ideal for a day out with the family, a quick run to get the blood flowing, or for photographers to grab the perfect sunset shot. “A natural reserve status is assigned to an area of importance, and typically is one that contains threatened plants, animals, habitats, or unique geological formations,” the trail website reads, so be mindful of this area’s protected status. Unfortunately, two of the most popular trails, Broken Hill and North Fork trails, are closed for the next few months. Located at 12600 N Torrey Pines Road, and encompassing 3.1-square-miles, it should be noted that this location is a reserve and not a park. For more information, call 858-755-2063. Cedar Creek Falls Trail (5.2 miles) Located in Cleveland National Forest, east of Escondido, this titular highlight of this hike is the falls themselves, a perfect way to cool off during a hot day. Be forewarned, however, water levels at the falls vary substantially throughout the year. The falls typically do not run during the summer months when the pool at the base of the falls is stagnant and filled with algae. It is recommended to have at least a gallon of water for each person for this moderate hike. For more information, visit the station at the trailhead, located at 15519 Thornbush Road in Ramona, or call 760-788-0250. Also, it is necessary to purchase a permit at recreation.gov/permits ahead of time. Los Penasquitos Canyon Trail (6.8 miles) Los Peñasquitos Canyon Preserve is an urban park stretching approximately seven miles. The park encompasses some 4,000 acres of both Peñasquitos and Lopez canyons and is one of the largest urban parks in the United States.  Offering an adventurous hike (but relatively easy), cool streams and smaller series of waterfalls, Los Penasquitos Canyon trail can often be rather crowded, so it is advised to go early in the morning or late afternoon to avoid crowds. Located at 12020 Black Mountain Road. The park closes at 7 p.m. daily. For more information, call 619-525-8213. This is a great hike for families, Three Sisters Falls Trail (4.5 miles) “Three Sisters” is a true San Diego gem, but is not to be trifled with – especially during the warmer months. It is an oft-too-frequent occurrence that people underestimate the gradient of this hike (not for beginners), as well as the loose sand that comprises it. If you’re lucky enough to get out on the trail after a heavy rain, however, it will make trudging through the heat all the more worth it. It should also be noted that this out-and-back trail has an elevation gain of 1,036 feet, which can make hiking back out a bit tiresome. Trailhead located at 14850 Boulder Creek Road in Julian. For more information, visit fs.usda.gov/recarea/cleveland. Mission Trails Regional Park Mission Trails Regional Park truly offers something for every level of hiker. From hanging out by the Old Mission Dam (not in protected areas), to trying out actual rock climbing, to quick, steep elevation, jumps, or just biking around, the park draws a vast array of sportsmen. Some favored trails are Cowles Mountain (the highest point in San Diego), Pyles Peak, Kwaay Paay Peak, South Fortuna Mountain and North Fortuna Mountains (both take several hours). From these peaks and mountainous trails, one is provided with a view of San Diego unlike any other. For more information, visit mtrp@mtrp.org, or call 619-668-3277. Located at 1 Father Junipero Serra Trail. Iron Mountain Trail (5.2 miles) Within close proximity to the popular Mt. Woodson (Potato Chip Rock) Trail, Iron Mountain offers a less-congested alternative to waiting in line to take an optical illusion photo. While the trail area is well-manicured, during peak hours there is little shade, so be sure to wear plenty of sunblock. With an elevation gain of 1,102 feet, Iron Mountain is one of the highest peaks in Poway. Apparently, on clear days, hikers can catch a glimpse of Catalina Island from the summit. Trailhead located at 14847-14909 CA-67. For more information, visit alltrails.com/trail/us/california/iron-mountain-trail—5. Santa Ysabel Open Space Preserve Actually two separate land parcels, Santa Ysabel East and West preserves allow for the introspective hiker to nearly fully escape into nature. With several shaded picnic areas off the trail, it is quite easy to get caught up in a 2.5-hour-long lunch. Although this land is still in use by cattle ranchers (they can often be found napping in/along the trail), it simply provides another facet to make it that much more of a “California” hike. Located at 29759 Old Julian Highway in Ramona.
