    All Souls’ to present ‘A Christmas Carol’ All Souls’ Episcopal Church, on Point Loma, will present an adaptation of Charles Dickens’s “A Christmas Carol” on Dec. 9 and 10. The two-man play has been adapted for the stage and is directed by Patricia Lynch.  It features W. William Cobb as Ebenezer Scrooge and Raymond Lynch as a dozen other characters.   Cobb has recently retired from teaching theatre in Point Loma schools. He has performed as a folk singer and choral singer, as well as appearing on stage with Lyric Opera San Diego, Vanguard Theatre, and San Diego Musical Theatre. Lynch has performed off-Broadway, at the Mark Taper Forum, and at Shakespeare festivals in Wisconsin, Colorado, and California. Locally, he has acted at the Coronado Playhouse, Pickwick Players, and the Old Globe. On television, his credits include playing Hot Lips Houlihan’s fantasy bridegroom on “M*A*S*H.” On the big screen, his credits include Sir Richard Attenborough’s “Chaplin.” All Souls’ is hoping to re-emerge as a “go-to” place for concerts, art shows, and theatrical presentations. The Music on the Point series has been in existence for 21 years, and last spring the church hosted a photography exhibit by architect Robert Mosher (who designed All Souls’) and an art show by renowned artist Ludmila Pawlowska. The Bach Collegium is in residence at All Souls’, offering Bach at Noon concerts.  Coming up in June will be Benjamin Britten’s opera for young performers, “Noyes Fludde,” based on the Biblical account of Noah’s Flood. Performances of “A Christmas Carol” will be in Gooden Hall on the All Souls’ campus, located at the corner of Catalina and Chatsworth, in Point Loma. Performances begin at 7 p.m. on Dec. 9, and 2 p.m. on Dec. 10. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students. Tickets may be purchased at allsoulspointloma.org. Roots of Giving fair at Point Loma Nazarene The Center for Justice and Reconciliation's annual Roots of Giving fair brings artisans, farmers, immigrant businesses and other community members together on the PLNU campus to sell their fair trade and justly created goods. The fair runs from 6 to10 p.m. Friday, Dec. 1, so stop by Caf Lane before or after the Cider Celebration. Come grab some dinner and do some Christmas shopping all while doing good. Santa Run in PB Pacific Beach will be very merry indeed on Dec. 9, as more than 3,000 Santas take over Garnet Avenue for the fifth annual San Diego Santa Run, starting at 10 a.m. Hosted by High Performance Movement, the event consists of a series of waves, including a 5K Fun Run and one-mile runs that feature the Santa’s Little Helper Mile (for the festive pup), the Santa’s Elves Mile (for kids) and the Speedy Mile (for competitive Santas). Throughout the course, runners donning “Sunny Santa Suits" — complete with white beards, Santa hats and sunglasses — will get in the spirit as holiday music is performed live on corners along the route. Following the Santa Run, participants are invited to stick around for the 38th annual Pacific Beach Holiday Parade, down Garnet Avenue, beginning at 1 p.m. The parade is funded, in part, by revenue generated through the Santa Run and other events put on by High Performance Movement. To register and for more information, visit www.sandiegosantarun.com. Peninsula Singers holiday show Peninsula Singers will present “Glad Tidings: A Holiday Concert” 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 8 at All Souls Episcopal Church, 1475 Catalina Blvd. Repertoire will include a blend of old-style carols, newer selections and classical holiday favorites. Tickets are $15 for adults, $12 for students, seniors and military. Children age 10 and under may attend for free. For more information or to purchase tickets online, visit peninsulasingerssandiego.org. Become a docent This is your opportunity to become a docent volunteer at the top-ranked maritime museum in North America. As a docent you will engage with museum visitors, fielding their questions and sharing your knowledge to enrich their experience. Training is carried out in a series of lectures, suggested readings and walking tours. Why not join other aspiring docents aboard the Berkeley ferryboat for the series of lectures and ship tours beginning on Monday, Jan. 8? To obtain more information about the docent training program contact training coordinator Jim Cassidy at 661-406-0605 or at jimdcass@aol.com. Keep grease, fats from the drain With the holiday season here, the City of San Diego is reminding people not to dispose of fats, oils or grease down the drain. Fats, oils and grease may clog pipes and over time cause a complete blockage, which could lead to a sewer spill. These sewer spills have the potential to reach San Diego’s bays, rivers and beaches, causing unsafe conditions and temporary closures. - Recycle large amounts of residential cooking oil or grease by disposing of it at the Miramar Landfill Recycling Center, 5165 Convoy St. - If any cooking oil or grease goes down your drain, immediately flush with cold water. - You may also throw any excess grease away in the trash. - Oils also come from salad dressings, butter, bacon fat, meat drippings, milk and mayonnaise. Bid on bachelors for a cause Under colorful lights at FLUXX Nightclub on Saturday, Dec. 2, 6 to 9 p.m., hundreds of San Diego's most civically engaged and successful women will bid for a chance at memorable date with one of more than a dozen eligible bachelors at the Jingle Bell Bachelor Bash to support women’s empowerment and foster youth. The lively auction will feature date packages and getaways including: Brewery tour of Ballast Point; Dinner at Oceana at the Catamaran Resort Hotel and Spa; Round of golf at the Riverwalk Golf Course; Weekend in Napa Valley; and Tickets to the Holiday Bowl game. For more details or to purchase tickets, visit jlsd.org. Holiday travel tips Holiday travel can be notoriously stressful – unexpected weather delays, lost luggage, long layovers – but it doesn’t have to be. To help, Lyft San Diego pulled some data from last year to show the busiest days/times for airport rides to help travelers plan ahead. Based on the findings: Busiest pickup dates/times from the San Diego International Airport (in descending order by ride volume):  1. ) Sunday after Thanksgiving (busiest time: 8 p.m. to 1 a.m.); 2. ) Monday after Thanksgiving (8 a.m.); 3. ) Day after Christmas (8 p.m. to 1 a.m.); 4. ) Second day after Christmas (8 p.m. to midnight). Busiest drop-off dates/times at the San Diego International Airport:  1. ) Wednesday before Thanksgiving (4 to 7 a.m., 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.); 2. ) Friday before Christmas (4 to 7 a.m.); 3. ) Thursday before Christmas (4 to 7 a.m.). “As expected, there are certain days, like the Sunday after Thanksgiving, that are traditionally packed days at the airport,” Lyft San Diego market manager Hao Meng said. “However, the data also shows us that people want to try and spend as much time with their families as possible, getting to the airport early mornings prior to the holiday and returning late evening on the last day possible before work or even the morning of work.”

    According to many experts, walking is the best exercise for people. And at the recent Joy of Walking conference, hosted by Walkabout International at Liberty Station, those experts emphasized the healthy satisfaction of a brisk jaunt. The coolest thing about walking is you can do it alone, with a friend, or an entire group. The other cool thing is that even while you are working out, walking at a comfortable pace for you, the things you see can take your breath away, especially right here in the neighborhoods of Point Loma and Ocean Beach. Here are five walks that will take your breath away. 1.) The Sunset Linear Park stretching from Adair Street to Ladera Street along Sunset Cliffs Boulevard, south of the Ocean Beach Pier, is perhaps the favorite go-to place for both locals and visitors, respectively. The round-trip walk covers 2.6 miles and can be done within an hour. Allow extra time for selfie and ocean shots. Bring a picnic supper to enjoy the sunset, especially in the fall and winter when so often there are vibrant color shows in the clouds once the sun has gone down. 2.) The Bayside Trail at Cabrillo Monument is a lesser known walk, but well worth the time to drive out to the point to visit the monument. The trail goes out and back for only two miles, but it will take your breath away for the steepness and the views. White sailboats bob alongside giant ships coming in and out of the bay. Downtown San Diego’s skyline gleams under the sun. Alongside the trail itself are flowering shrubs in nearly every season, and at least one red-tailed hawk makes the shrubs alongside the trail as its vista point. Allow an hour and a half for this hike and the many stops along the way you’ll want to take. 3.) Luscomb’s Point to San Diego Yacht Club yields the most diverse views from Sunset Cliffs to the bayside of Point Loma. Luscomb’s Point, at the end of Hill Street, is named after Happy Luscomb, a local resident who often surfed the area. From Hill Street at Sunset Cliffs, walk up to the top of the Fleetridge neighborhood of beautiful mansions and far-reaching views. Turn right on Catalina, then left on Talbot Street, to go down to the La Playa section of Point Loma, adjacent to the San Diego Yacht Club. The one-way walk is 1.7 miles; plan for a full day at 3.4 miles round-trip. Almost exactly halfway through this walk is a perfect stop for a coffee break at a Peet’s Coffee. 4.) Dog Beach to Ocean Beach Pier Café is the iconic OB trek. Whether or not you have a dog, all the cute canines splashing and racing in the water at Dog Beach is sure to start your walk off on the right foot. The round-trip trek from Dog Beach to the pier is two miles. The pier itself stretches for just over a third of a mile over the ocean, the longest fishing pier on the West Coast. A must-have for lunch or even a light dinner is the lobster tacos at the Pier Café. Stay for the sunset and enjoy the sky show on the walk back to Dog Beach. 5.) For the Shelter Island Stroll, you can begin on either end of this small 1.2 mile-long peninsula. Originally a sandbank in San Diego Bay, Shelter Island is a visual goldmine of all things beautiful and interesting, any time of day or night. The Bali Hai Restaurant is on the northern side, the Japanese Friendship Bell on the southern side. You’ll see everything from giant cargo ships to elegant cruise ships sliding through the bay, their giant wakes causing the moored boats to wobble on the ocean. Every kind of bird, from brown pelicans to great blue herons and ospreys, make their home here. The pelicans that hang out at the Shelter Island are friends of the fishermen – or vice versa – who will toss the birds some of their own catch. Below the pier, sea lions will sometimes steal the fish for themselves. Shelter Island is a wonderful place to watch people play and the world go by. What’s more, the San Diego skyline provides a dramatic backdrop for the full moon rising during the spring and summer months. Walkabout International has a weekly group that meets at the Bali Hai each Thursday morning at 10 a.m. Cynthia Robertson has been a reporter and photographer for newspapers in San Diego County since the 1980s. She has written a novel, which will be published in 2018. Email her at c1g2robertson@gmail.com.

    There's a “big” day coming up for small businesses in Ocean Beach: Small Business Saturday on Nov. 25. And the beach community is all in on the merchant holiday two days after Thanksgiving. Ocean Beach MainStreet Association (OBMA) is celebrating Small Business Saturday with a Passport to OB contest to encourage the community to shop local this holiday. The almost month-long contest kicks off on Small Business Saturday itself with shopping, fun giveaways and a giant sand sculpture on the beach. Attendees are encouraged to stop by the grassy area at Abbott and Newport from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. to receive free shopping bags and other goodies before snapping a picture with the sand sculpture. Designed by Imperial Beach sand artist Leonard Gonzales, his sculpture will celebrate OB and shop small. First observed in the United States in 2010, Small Business Saturday is a counterpart to Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The merchant event encourages holiday shoppers to patronize brick-and-mortar businesses that are small and local. “It's wonderful to have a day that focuses on small businesses, because they're the ones that benefit the most from people spending their dollars in their business,” said Isabel Clark, OBMA programs director. “And that is what our association is all about. It's a great vehicle to increase awareness about small businesses, and gives them an opportunity to give customers a chance to learn more about new and existing businesses.” Clark said the centerpiece of OBMA's Small Business Saturday campaign this year is the Shop Small OB Passport, wherein customers will get a card with the names of 26 participating merchants and their businesses on it that they can get punched for a chance at a future drawing. “The more businesses you visit and get your card punched at, the better your odds are for winning a prize,” said Clark, adding the Passport program runs until Dec. 20. “Then people turn in their cards and the drawing is held,” Clark said. “Participating businesses will have gift cards and other really cool things you can win.” Passport participants include: Abbott Street Market, Apple Tree Supermarket, Arizona Cafe, Beach Sweets, Bone Appetit, Car's Jars, Crystal Visions, Details SalonSpa, James Gang Printing Company, Lighthouse Ice Cream, OB People's Organic Food Market, Ocean Beach Business Center, Pat's Liquor, Pirate's Cove Tiki Port, Raglan Public House, Reset Float Therapy, Shot From The Hart Photography, South Coast Surf Shop, South Coast Wahines, Sunset Clipps, Swanky Sugar, Synergy, Thistle Garden Floral Home, Tony's, Sunshine Co. Saloon and Ocean Beach MainStreet Association. Denny Knox, OBMA executive director, said Small Business Saturday is a great showcase. “Ocean Beach has so many great local shops and restaurants,” she said. "We’re really excited to create exposure for the variety of retail, dining and services offered in our community to entice people to come to OB to shop small.” “This is the first year we've done this on this scale, really doing a big push,” said Clark, adding, “Hopefully, it will become an annual thing, and we can expand it next year.” Founded in 1978, the Ocean Beach MainStreet Association is comprised of area merchants and professionals dedicated to building a thriving business district that fulfills the needs of the neighboring community and visitors alike.

    Point Loma grads grab the brass ring to preserve Balboa Park landmark

    Two Point Loma High grads, "Pointer Sisters" from the Class of '66, are heading up the campaign to not only keep the Balboa Park carousel — but restore and protect it too. Of the $3 million PLHS alumna Ann Wilson and Kathy Anderson Kim are hoping to raise over the next two years, $1 million has already been donated. One of the ways funds are raised is through sponsorships in the $15,000 to $50,000 range in perpetuity for the carousel animals. Wilson, chair of the nonprofit Balboa Park Carousel Capital Campaign Committee of Friends of Balboa Park, said her alma mater is pitching in to resuscitate the park carousel. “Point Loma alumni are attempting to raise $35,000 to sponsor the golden Pointer dog on the carousel (which will have a permanent brass plaque acknowledging the donation),” said Wilson's committee co-chair, Anderson Kim. “Thus far, Pointers from many graduating classes have reached the $23,000 mark.” Wilson noted previous private owners of the Balboa Park Carousel, a historic 1910 model valued at $2.6 million, were “low key” about its upkeep. “They (previous owners) took loving care of the carousel, but they did no publicity or special events with it (for maintenance). Friends of Balboa Park bought the carousel last July. We are on a mission to spruce it up, have more events and give it a higher profile.” The 1910 Herschell-Spillman menagerie carousel was made in New York and shipped to Los Angeles. Adjacent to the San Diego Zoo, the carousel is a menagerie of animals, and all but two pairs are original with hand-carved European craftsmanship. Also original are the hand-painted murals surrounding the upper portion of the carousel and the military band music. This carousel is one of the few in the world still offering the brass ring game for everyone taking the five-minute ride. In 1915, the carousel was displayed in Coronado, before being moved up to Balboa Park around 1922. It originally was placed at the east of Balboa Park, near the San Diego Natural History Museum. In 1968, the carousel was moved north, to its current location, to make way for construction of the Bea Evenson Fountain, and the building that now houses the Fleet Science Center. Wilson said Friends of Balboa Park got a break when purchasing the historic carousel. “The Steen family offered it to us for $1.6 million (a $1 million discount) because they could take that as a tax benefit as we are a 501c3 nonprofit,” she said adding, “Now it's going to stay here.” Wilson said Friends of Balboa Park made a $600,000 down payment on the carousel. “We have a second installment, $500,000, due in March 2018, and third and last installment in March 2019,” she said. The Friends of Balboa Park's committee co-chair said funding for carousel maintenance/refurbishment is coming mostly from donations from private individuals and foundations. “I'm proud to say we've raised slightly more than $1 million for the down payment, and we're well on the way to have the next payment (second installment) in our hands. But we have a ways to go.” Wilson encouraged PLHS alumni to pitch in for a good cause. “We want to spread the word that we still need money, and so we're asking alumni to contribute whatever they can, $25 or $50, so that we can have our plaque on the (Pointer) dog.” Wilson got involved with the carousel project because, she said, “I've been riding it since I was 3 years old, and it's near and dear to my heart. I couldn't bear the thought of it leaving the park. It's a real treasure — and a rare one.” Balboa Park carousel Where: Park Boulevard at Zoo Place. Hours: Open Saturdays, Sundays and school holidays 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Summer open daily until 5:30 p.m. Info: campaign@friendsofbalboapark.org, 619-232-2282, balboaparkcarousel.org.

    Pacific Beach and Mission Beach are filled with colorful murals, scenic streets, pretty parks and a historic pier that all make perfect photo locations for a top-notch Instagram gallery. Here are the top 10 most Instagram-worthy places that you can’t miss while you are visiting Pacific Beach and Mission Beach. Mermaid mural One of the most popular places in Pacific Beach for Instagram photos is the bright mermaid mural on Mission Boulevard just north of Dirty Birds. The beautiful mural was painted by Jared Blake Lazer (aka Jared Black Lazer), who is a Southern California-based visual artist, muralist and graphic designer. Lazer painted the mural in 2015 for the shop Daffodil Dresses, which was located there at that time. You can’t say that you have been in Pacific Beach without posting a photo of yourself in front of the mural. Bait shack The former bait shack about halfway out on the South Mission Beach jetty is like a doorway to the Pacific Ocean. The exterior has been painted over various times with colorful graffiti, which makes it an interesting backdrop for a cool photo. But be careful walking out on the slick jetty rocks; the shack is not as close as it seems. Lifeguard towers Another popular prop for a good photo are the lifeguard towers along Pacific Mission beaches. The white and yellow towers, combined with the blue sky and the light sand, make a perfect California beach photo. There are more than 20 towers all the way from South Mission Beach to Pacific Beach, so there is no excuse for not posting a photo. Beach Bungalow Hostel At the end of Reed Avenue, just by the beach, is the yellow, blue, orange, green and turquoise Beach Bungalow Hostel. The hostel is filled with murals, patterns and more colors. Next to the hostel, on the boardwalk, is an ice cream shop that has a mural of a big shark on its north side, which is another popular Instagram spot. The hostel has a very authentic and memorable vibe that gives you the perfect California feels. Beach sunsets There are plenty of places deemed Instagram-worthy to watch the sunset in San Diego, and Mission Beach and Pacific Beach are no exception. Just pick a spot along the Ocean Front Walk to get a stunning view of the latest Southern California miracle. Crystal Pier Another popular location for photos is underneath the 90-year-old Crystal Pier in Pacific Beach (on the pier works as well). The wooden pillars, together with the foaming waves and the bright sand, makes it a fun location for a group photo. Belmont Park The old wooden roller coaster at Belmont Park with the white, red and turquoise colors, the palm trees in the background, with the beach right next to it, screams for an Instagram shot. The historic amusement ride in Mission Beach, named the Giant Dipper, was built in 1925. Wings at Cass Street Pacific Beach has been described as heavenly and it does have a pair of white angel wings to show for it. The mural, originally painted for a photo shoot, is located on a wall on the west side of Cass Street near the PB library. Having a photo taken “wearing” the angel wings is a rite of passage for visitors and residents. La Jolla Mesa Drive Head north on Mission Boulevard and then take La Jolla Mesa Drive toward Mt. Soledad. The road gets steep, but on the way up make sure to look in your rearview mirror as the Pacific Beach coastline starts to come into view. Pull over and take a selfie – on a clear day you can see all the way to the Ocean Beach Pier. Tourmaline Street What is more Instagram-worthy than a street filled with palm trees on both sides and the ocean in the background? The street severely slopes down to the beach, so stand at the top for a selfie and feed your Instagram account some “California Love.” As an added bonus, find a spot in the parking lot at the bottom of the street, check out the mural on the side of the bathhouse, and then watch the surfers in action.
