    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.”

    I was HBV (hepatitis B virus) carrier by birth, I even took Sebivo for 3 years when the stage became acute. I stopped taking the medicine because of the rust of my skin. This year virus is back again at the highest state. So far now I just safeguard my liver by taking honey, and HP Pro. By having enough rest, doing light exercise and avoid alcohol to boost body immunity. April My parents purchased six bottles of HBV herbal formula from (BHHC) BEST HEALTH HERBAL CENTRE for the whole family. I used 2 bottles for 6 weeks just like my parents, now we are completely free from Hepatitis B virus. My family is now enjoying the benefit of healthy life.

    The group that owns the San Diego Gulls minor hockey league team, Anaheim Arena Management (AAM), has been selected by the City of San Diego to replace Pechanga Arena’s current operator, Arena Group 2000, as arena manager following a request for proposals (RFP) process. “From the outset of this process, our goal was to improve the experience for the arena’s users and guests, enhance the volume and quality of programming and increase revenue for San Diego taxpayers,” said Tim Ryan, president/CEO of AAM. “We are excited that the review panel agreed with this vision and selected our bid. We look forward to working collaboratively with the city staff to finalize an agreement that will achieve all of this plus deliver more value for the City of San Diego and its residents,” Ryan said. Spokesperson Craig Benedetto noted AAM is a subsidiary of H&S Ventures, which is the family office of Henry Samueli of Orange County, who owns the NHL Anaheim Ducks and the Gulls. “This kicks off negotiation of a contract with the City, and that contract will be brought back to the City Council for approval,” Benedetto said. “The lease still needs to be approved by council committee and the full council, which could happen toward the end of the year,” said Arian Collins, supervising City spokesperson.  Arena Group 2000 said it intends to challenge the proposed arena management change. “With only three years left to the building’s life as defined through the RFP process, we are the operator that has invested over $30 million into this building making our 53-year-old arena a top 10 arena in the world with 10,000 to 15,000 seating capacity,” said Rick Schloss, Arena 2000 spokesman. “We plan to defend our position to be the arena operator as we have for the last 28 years, as this lease still needs to be negotiated with the City and ratified through the City Council. Through this RFP process, over 450 local groups and businesses have supported us. Our team is extremely proud of our accomplishments,” Schloss said.  The Gulls are owned by Henry and Susan Samueli. Henry Samueli is a businessman, engineer and philanthropist who co-founded Broadcom Corp. and is its board chairman. He is a professor on leave of absence in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at UCLA. He is a named inventor in 75 U.S. patents. Pechanga Arena is home to four sports franchises including the Gulls, the sixth professional hockey team there, as well as the San Diego Sockers, San Diego Seals, and San Diego Strike Force. The arena holds 125 events welcoming 750,000 visitors annually.  The original Sports Arena was built in 1966 by Robert Breitbard, a local football hero who played for Hoover High School and San Diego State, for $6.4 million. In November 2016, Sports Arena celebrated 50 years of bringing live entertainment to San Diego.  Over the years, the venue hosted a heavyweight boxing championship fight between Muhammed Ali and Ken Norton, as well as numerous concerts by high-profile musicians and bands. Valley View Casino's naming rights expired Nov. 30, 2018, leaving the arena without an official name. The City Council announced on Dec. 4, 2018, that the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians, owners of the Pechanga Resort & Casino win Temecula in Riverside County, had acquired for $400,000 per year the naming rights to the arena, officially renaming it Pechanga Arena. The agreement runs through May 2020.

    Local legends inducted into San Diego's Surfing Hall of Fame

    Several local surfers and shapers were among legends of the sport who were inducted Aug. 13 into San Diego's Surfing Hall of Fame at a ceremony at Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach. The event was hailed by its organizers as “the greatest gathering of surf legends San Diego has ever seen.” Among the inaugural list of surfing hall of famers: • Skip Frye (from Pacific Beach known for his pro surf career and iconic boards.) • Mike Hynson (from Pacific Beach who costarred in the 1966 hit "The Endless Summer" and surfboard design guru.) • Butch Van Artsdalen (from La Jolla, a pioneering surfer who took on 25-foot waves in Hawaii to garner the title "Mr. Pipeline.") • Tom Ortner (La Jolla resident and an icon in the Windansea beach community.) • Carl Ekstrom (from La Jolla, developed the first asymmetrical boards in the late 1960s.) • Larry Gordon (a fixture in the board making community from the 1960s until his death in 2016.) • John Holly (veteran Ocean Beach surfer and board shaper.) • Chuck Hasley (founder of the Windansea Surf Club of La Jolla.) • Windansea Surf Club (legendary surf club known for boasting some of the best-known surfing names.) Surfboard craftsman Hank Warner, a legend in his own right, was the event’s master of ceremonies. “It was a big event, Belly Up was packed,” said Warner adding, “Ninety-nine percent of surfers grew up idolizing these inductees in the San Diego Surfing Hall of Fame.” Attendees enjoyed live music from Jimmy Lewis, live art from Wade Koniakowsky, and a special collaboration between Warner and surf filmmaker Ira Opper.  "These innovators and pioneers have emerged everywhere that waves break. In this regard, San Diego has been particularly blessed," organizers wrote. "Our 70 miles of coastline have produced some of the most innovative shapers and wave stylists in the sport. And as everyone paddling out to the lineup knows, you have to honor those who have come before us." Warner discussed his long-term goals for the San Diego Hall of Fame. “We’re going to be doing this yearly,” he said. “We have a list of about 100 people we’ll be choosing from.” Warner pointed out the inaugural list of legends are “influential surfers so it was pretty much bulletproof (selecting) for the first year.” Warner said the objective is for the San Diego Hall of Fame to be nonprofit and truly representative of the surfing community. “It’s an amazing group,” he noted. “It’s not just surfers. It’s shapers. It’s artists. It’s photographers, the whole gamut. It’s really honoring all the elite surfers who have come before us.” Discussing the policy of a future brick-and-mortar San Diego Hall of Fame site, Warner envisions inductees “donating boards, photos, wetsuits, etc., priceless heirlooms to the museum/hall of fame.”

    La Jolla Cove’s famous caves still an attraction, especially Sunny Jim

    In addition to its breathtaking scenery La Jolla has something a lot of beachside communities don’t – sea caves. The seven La Jolla sea caves – The White Lady, Shopping Cart, Little Sister, Sea Surprize, Arch Cave, Sunny Jim and Clam Cave – can be identified from east to west. It is said the caves were formed from a 75-million-year-old sandstone cliff, and according to an LA Times article, they were originally used as a hideout for drug smugglers and some pirates. In addition, all but the Sunny Jim and The White Lady were named in the 1900s and 1800s by lifeguards to help identify landmarks during search and rescue missions, according to the same article. Speaking of Sunny Jim, it is the only La Jolla cave accessible by land; visitors can walk down 145 steps into a hand-dug tunnel after buying a ticket at the Cave Store. As the story goes, and according to La Jolla Historical Society archives, the Sunny Jim cave has a long history dating back to 1902. “The Sunny Jim Cave was one of seven La Jolla caves originally exploited as a tourist attraction in the early 1900s by Gustav Schultz, a German immigrant, artist, and engineer. Schulz, a self-proclaimed professor, artist, photographer and civil engineer, who dug a tunnel into it and provided public access from land, first by rope and then stairs, collected a modest sum from anyone wishing to enter,” said La Jolla Historical Society historian Carol Olten. “The same idea has continued into the present day with people paying a fee to make the descent  from inside the Cave Store into Sunny Jim, eponymously named after a historic cartoon character whose profile is vaguely suggested by the silhouette seen from looking oceanward through it,” Olten said. She added that for many years the store operated mainly as a shell shop for exotic and not-so-exotic-finds, but the merchandise today is more generalized with “beachy things, postcards, a few antiques and memorabilia.” Early Days In the beginning, visitors had to enter through the original Schulz’s Cave Store and lowered themselves down into the tunnel by a rope. Years later the steps were added and continue today, according to current Cave Store shop owner Shannon Smith. Smith said she has owned the shop for a few years now located at 1325 Coast Blvd. and it has become more of a souvenir store for those looking to take a bit of the nostalgia back home. “The store and cave continue to be popular attractions all these decades later we have thousands who visit yearly and probably hundreds daily,” she said. “We are the oldest continuously running business – we’ve been open more than 100 years. “When people go down the steps it takes about 10-15 minutes through a long tunnel and they end up on a platform inside the cave where they can take in the scene,” she said. There’s no swimming or jumping into the water and because it’s a sea cave the water comes in and out of the cave. “The water is underneath you, so you don’t get wet. People love it,” she said. However, some recent construction in the area has caused a bit of a wrinkle for the shop. “It has slowed down slightly but people are still allowed to drive down here but they can’t drive all the way down Coast Boulevard,” she said. “We still have a lot of visitors, but parking is limited. “The city is doing some repair work on Cove Cave, which is not accessible to locals or tourists.” According to Anthony Santacroce, senior spokesperson for City of San Diego, the city has taken safety precautions for the repairs. Crews began the emergency construction project to stabilize one cliff area on Aug. 8, and the roadway in La Jolla following an analysis by geology experts. He said experts discovered a zone of weakness where "Koch's Cave," (pronounced as "cook" and named after lifeguard Jeff Koch who made a daring rescue there in 1977) is located underneath Coast Boulevard and recommended action be taken. “We immediately shut down the street and initiated an emergency contract to reinforce the cave,” Santacroce said. As part of the stabilization project, sections of Cave Street and Coast Boulevard will be closed temporarily to all traffic for about six weeks or longer depending on what is found by the crews, he said. “People can still get around and this cave will essentially be closed off permanently, we’re just not sure how it will appear when the project is completed,” he said. “People however can still get around and see the beautiful La Jolla caves.” Other Sunny Jim Folklore According to more folklore, some stories suggest the cave was initially called “Sunny Jim” by Frank Baum, the author of “The Wizard of Oz.” Why? Because looking outward from the inside of the cave, the opening profile resembles the cartoon mascot for British Force Wheat Cereal (named Sunny Jim) created by W.W. Denslow in the 1920s. There are other rumors and tales suggesting the cavern was named after former California Gov. “Sunny Jim” Rolph. A third tales says it is named so because its opening resembles a smiling (sunny) man (named Jim for an unknown reason) facing leftward.Like Sunny Jim the other six caves have their own story and history, which will be explored in upcoming articles.

    Family and friends remember Mike White at Sunset Cliffs ceremony

    Friends and family held a memorial and paddle out at Sunset Cliffs on Sunday, Aug. 11 for Point Loma native Mike White, a well-known angler, free diver, and surfboard shaper. Long time friend and former girlfriend Amy "Oklahoma" Steiner, who helped organize the memorial, shared her eulogy for her close friend Mike: “Mike was a great guy, not a dude or a bro, as he would correct you. We all knew he was a true waterman, a surfer, windsurfer, skateboarder, free diver, fisherman and whatever else he could do in his backyard, literally. “His family bought a piece of land on Ladera Street in 1964 two years prior to Mike being born. It would be the third home at Sunset Cliffs and an incredible dream for Charles and Sheris White’s unborn son to discover. “Mike was forever a cliff dweller, it ‘shaped’ his life (pun intended). Mike was so wise about the ocean and fearless. He originally was a fisherman sitting on a longboard way out in the kelp beds. His mother was strong and knew he was a smart boy. At a young age he would bring home dinner. “Then his sights were set on building himself a board, and the story explodes there. Mike was always curious, his brain didn't rest. He learned how to glass and became the go-to-guy laminating boards for Skip Frye and others. (In fact, the people who paddled out for his memorial almost all had boards he laminated with the ‘Great White’ shark logo.) “Mike was a humble guy. He was kind and extremely sensitive, his friendliness was his kindness. A true optimist, he threw himself into life. But Mike's life turned around when Clark Foam closed it's doors in 2005. The entire surfboard shaping industry dropped their collective heads. This industry was what Mike knew, and he became lost without it. “He became deeply depressed and eventually lost almost everything. He turned to alcohol. It broke everyone's heart. He eventually worked in construction, did landscaping and handy work around Point Loma, but stopped going in the water. “I dated Mike for nearly eight years, he was one of my greatest loves. There were good years when he got sober, but eventually, his heart broke and he crumbled. He had so many who admired him and when he grew ill, he suffered nearly alone. He and I spoke often and I saw him almost weekly with his friend Mike O'Brien. Mike did everything with passion and that’s why he had such admiration from his many friends. His positive spirit affected everyone he knew. “He was an amazing man and I was lucky enough to have had his friendship for 28 years. When we first met at the Cliffs in 1991, I told him I was from Oklahoma. After that, when I strolled the Cliffs I would hear his voice beckon ‘Oklahoma’ and he would greet me with his wide smile and reach out for a hug. I will forever be grateful and never forget him.”
