    Option B for Fiesta Island.
    Option B for Fiesta Island.
    slideshow
    Audience members practically howled after San Diego City Council voted unanimously June 17 for the more dog-friendly of two options offered for redeveloping Fiesta Island. The Council joined four other previous governmental bodies in selecting dog friendlier Option B over Option A, which was espoused by the non-motorized boating community including kayakers and paddlers. Only the City Planning Commission chose Option A over Option B. Both options were proposed as an amendment to the Mission Bay Park Master Plan to update the land uses and vision for manmade, 470-acre, multi-use Fiesta Island. Option A would have divided the island with a road, which would have reduced access for off-leash dog users, in favor of providing storage and beach access for personal watercraft. Option B keeps the island intact and undivided, while increasing the fenced, off-leash area, which would have been bisected by a road if Option A had been chosen. City staffer Sarah Osborn told Council members both options being considered were meant to “preserve natural resources and improve both water access and road circulation.” She added both options also “formalized much of existing uses on the island.” Public testimony at the Council hearing was stacked heavily in favor of Option B advocated by the Fiesta Island Dog Owners group. Only two people testified in favor of non-motorized more boat-friendly Option A. Kathy Archibald of San Diego Outrigger Canoe Club noted members of the non-motorized boating community who “come in all shapes and sizes and from every demographic just want a place to get to the water.” Kathy Parrish of FIDO countered that Option B would benefit more island users. “Tens of thousands of people use this space free at Fiesta Island 365 days a year from dawn to dusk, rain or shine,” she said. “We don’t need more roads and fences. Don’t pave over paradise.” FIDO president Carolyn Chase read letters for Option B supporters from every City Council district. “This is the most affordable and sustainable plan for most users and most uses,” Chase concluded. Following public testimony, District 2 Councilmember Dr. Jennifer Campbell noted both options improved Fiesta Island, “especially the path and the bicycle area around the island making them safer. I’m a strong supporter of keeping Fiesta in its most natural form. I’d like to move certification of the environmental impact report, and amending the Mission Bay Master Plan to include Option B.” District 7 Councilmember Scott Sherman reiterated his stance that a non-motorized boat launch and area for personal watercraft would be a better fit at the existing South Shores Boat Launch, which he described as “incredibly underutilized.” District 8 Councilmember Vivian Moreno credited both sides for being passionate, producing photos of dogs that people favoring Option B had emailed her. “I’m the mother of one dog and I take her there to run on the sand and play in the surf and I understand why so many people go there,” she said. “I don’t see the need to destroy the experience of thousands of dogs and their families, and that’s why I’m supporting this motion.”

    Did you ever wonder what catapulted skateboarding’s popularity into the stratosphere? Does history of a “sport,” born and bred along the coast of Southern California, coincide with your love of surfing? Are you “stoked” to know that skateboarding will be featured in Tokyo for the 2020 Summer Olympics? If you’ve answered yes to any of the above questions, John O’Malley’s new book, “Urethane Revolution: The Birth of Skate-San Diego 1975,” is a must read. The always interesting, sometimes shocking, off-color page-turner dialogues the history of the skateboarding from one of its founding fathers, John O’Malley. Dubbed the “greatest story never told in extreme sports history,” O’Malley retraces his steps as a member of the original Skunkworks crew to creating his own skateparks. Photographs – sure to make everyone reminisce about the good ole’ days – accompany stories from the underground. “One crazy year on the California coast in 1975 a hippie skunkworks, bred in garages and shacks, launched the modern skater movement,” writes O’Malley. Strap in for a wild ride replete with two car chases, two plane crashes, a massive truck bomb, Colombian Narcos, the Mafia, senior White House staff, a gypsy fortuneteller, three straight-up miracles, Jacques Cousteau, big piles of cocaine and naked hippie chicks.” O’Malley details the books title, “Urethane Revolution” beginning with the history behind the urethane. “Around 1973, a guy named Frank Nasworthy discovered these urethane training wheels that were used on beginners’ roller skates,” he notes. “They were grippier than the unforgiving composite clay wheels of the day. Frank bolted them on his skateboard and bingo! Suction-cup traction like no one had ever imagined possible. It’s in that instant that the skateboard went from a toy with feet of clay to a wall-climbing UFO, screaming at warp speed to the 2020 Olympics.” The Revolution follows suit. “The Revolution began when a rift opened in the universe and that centrifugal buzz – heretofore available only through sports like surfing and skiing – came leaking out of the streets,” writes O’Malley. “Adrenaline rushing up your road, serotonin dripping down the drive. And the scales fell from our eyes: Any paved surface could be ridden. And the call went out: The rift has opened, God is great, spread the word.” According to O’Malley, a perfect storm of “ill winds” that began with a historic drought fueled the Revolution. “The drought uncovered insanely fun new skating forms like the reservoirs and drainage ditches while recession-vacant homes had their swimming pools drained and skated,” he pens. “Our eyes spoked an urban landscape lit up with a million new possibilities.” “Urethane Revolution” also showcases La Jolla native Bobby Turner. The innovative craftsman built Turner Summer/Ski slalom skateboards. Still popular today, these boards are constructed along the design vein of surfboards and snow skis. According to O’Malley, Turner’s skateboards “revolutionized” slalom skating boards. O’Malley touts, “The Revolution is over. Skaters won.” And if you need a place to play, check out Robb Field; San Diego’s first skateboard park constructed and operated by the City. Designed with input from the legendary Tony Hawk, the 40,000 square foot concrete park is suitable for all ages and skill levels. Sidling the San Diego River Bike Path at the onset of Ocean Beach, the “street course” features a combination bowl, handrails, ledges, blocks, a pump bump and an octagon volcano. Location: 2525 Bacon St.

I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don’t believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there.

    WAVES OF BLUE – Bioluminescence glow returns along San Diego beaches

    The crimson tide is back. Not Alabama’s football team, but the bioluminescent glow from the marine phenomenon known as the red tide. “It’s intermittent and impossible to predict,” said Scripps Institution of Oceanography scientist and bioluminescence expert Michael Latz, of the recurring phenomenon. Red tides are caused by aggregations of dinoflagellates (marine plankton) including Ceratium falcatiforme and Lingulodinium polyedra. The latter is known for its bioluminescent displays, with waves or water movement causing the phytoplankton to glow neon blue at night. Pictures posted recently on social media showed the eerie neon glow. According to several San Diego photographers who captured the effect, the bioluminescent algae bloom was captured along the shores from Torrey Pines State Beach to Ocean Beach. The range of red tides also varies greatly. There was a really big one in October 2011 that extended up the entire Southern California coast from the Mexican border to Los Angeles. “It’s usually every couple years, but sometimes it happens in sequential years,” said Latz of the red tide, noting there was a massive one along the San Diego coast in 1995, with a follow-up the next year. It’s happening again, as there was a red tide in 2018, and now another one this year, both starting near the end of May. The Scripps scientist said the tide’s plankton go through developmental stages, much like the lifecycle of some insects. “The organisms that produce this tide have a dormant life state called a cyst, that can sink down into the sediment and emerge later,” Latz said. “Local red tides maybe have an internal clock, and a year later they emerge into swimming cells. On a calm sunny day, they’re (plankton) attracted to the sunlight and they swim right up to the surface. If the water is strong enough to stimulate them, they’ll  produce bioluminescence.” “It is of great scientific interest why that is occurring,” said Latz of the tidal algae blooms. “For me, the bioluminescence is really the spectacular part.” Latz added scientists have successfully grown red tide plankton. “We just grow them for our research in labs so we can study them even when they’re not abundant on the coast here,” he said. Scripps scientists continue to sample red tides when they occur to learn more about the genetic and metabolic characteristics of the organisms. The waves propagate onshore, and their circulation patterns create dense accumulations of the red-tide organisms over the troughs of the waves. As you look out over the ocean, you'll see that the red tide typically appears in stripes parallel to shores. These are the internal wave troughs. Bioluminescent displays are viewed best from a dark beach at least two hours after sunset, though visibility is not guaranteed.  What’s also mysterious is the timing and duration of red tides, which have lasted anywhere from one week to a month or more.  Latz said red tides can, but rarely do, contain a chemical neurotoxin that can be harmful to man and other mammals. “Some people who’ve gone out in the surf with them have had dizziness or asthma-like conditions,” he said. “It’s something we are interested in studying.” There has also been a pronounced seasonality to red tides. “Historically, they used to happen in early fall,” said Latz. “Then that shifted in the ’90s so that it also occurs in spring. Spring and fall are the times when it happens the most.”

    La Jolla teen surfer returns to the water after brain injury

    Mick Davey is no stranger to the water. 
     
    The youngest of four, it was a family rite of passage for the La Jolla 16-year-old to learn how to surf with his dad, Chuck Davey, when he was only 4 years old.
     
    “We grew up on the beach,” Chuck Davey said. “We were at the beach every day.”
     
    Throughout his young life, Mick Davey has been fortunate enough to surf internationally in Fiji, Australia, Tahiti, and Barbados. He joined the surf team in middle school  — and has since continued to compete for La Jolla High School — after he told his dad he wanted to stop playing soccer. Since it’s a requirement that all the Davey kids participate in a sport, Chuck Davey told his son he had to do competitive surfing — which was fine by him. 
     
    “I have more fun surfing and I like being in the water,” he said. 
     
    A promising figure on the surf team, Mick Davey caught the eye of Lee Bertrand, a water and surf photographer. They met after Bertrand saw him surfing alongside big names like Damian Hopgood and Josh Kerr. 
     
    “He was this 14-year-old kid charging with these pros,” Bertrand recalled. “I felt like he was on a good path of surfing, really humble and cool kid. Then he got that gnarly injury.”
     
    While surfing at Windansea Beach on April 18, 2018, Mick Davey hit his head on the nose of his surfboard, lodging an inch of the board's fiberglass into his brain. He felt something sticking out of his head and quickly swam to shore. 
     
    Luckily Chuck Davey, who had been a lifeguard for 36 years, was there and knew exactly what to do. 
     
    “It was pretty hectic but the key is to stay calm,” Chuck Davey said. “Anytime there’s something sticking out, you never pull it out. If we would have pulled it out, he would have died because it severed a main vein in his brain.”
     
    Bertrand agrees. 
     
    "His dad being a local lifeguard probably has a lot to do with why he’s still alive," he said. 
     
    Medics quickly arrived on the scene and transported Mick Davey to the hospital. According to Chuck Davey, his son's injury kind of “freaked out” the E.R. doctors. 
     
    “They made a call to the neurosurgeon right away," Chuck Davey said. "They couldn’t even fit him in to do a CAT scan because of the fiberglass.”
     
    For four hours, surgeons worked to carefully remove the remnants of the surfboard, seaweed, and seawater from the teen's brain, and three titanium plates were put in his skill to hold the severed vein. The experience was hard on the entire Davey family, especially his dad.
     
    “He wasn’t out of the woods for probably a month,” Chuck Davey said. “Your whole world kind of stops.”
     
    “I don't know; I was pretty stoked to get out of school for a month,” Mick Davey joked with his dad.
     
    Miraculously, he suffered no loss of memory, vision or brain function. And while the doctors said they didn’t want him surfing for six to eight months, Mick Davey started getting back in the water after three — with one modification.
     
    “He had the idea, 'Well, what if I got a helmet?’” Chuck Davey said. A family friend loaned them a Gath surf helmet, which made him feel more comfortable with his comeback. 
     
    "When it first happened and I was in the hospital, I looked at my dad and was like ‘I don’t think I want to surf anymore,'" Mick Davey recalled. "Then in two weeks later, I was like ‘I wanna surf. The Gath helmet still makes me feel more confident."
     
    While getting back into competitions and continuing with the surf team are all apart of the grand plan, Mick Davey and his dad agree that he’s taking it easy this year. For now, it's about getting comfortable in the water again — which is easier with Gath is sponsoring him — and enjoying this life he's lucky to lead.

    San Diego International Airport’s Arts Program has launched this year’s collective experience for airport travelers and visitors. The Arts Program aims to infuse the airport with light, levity, comfort and enriching experiences. The program highlights the region’s rich cultural community through three components: temporary exhibitions, performing arts and public art. A new Arts Master Plan will carry these focus areas into the future with guidelines for the program’s continued innovation. “At the heart of our Arts Program is to deliver inviting experiences through creative, visually appealing and memorable artwork and programs,” said Kim Becker, president/CEO of the Airport Authority.  “Designed with the traveler in mind, we invite SAN users to pause, take a moment on their journey, and enjoy this uniquely San Diego experience.” Performing arts Now through June, the airport’s spring performing arts residency group, San Diego Dance Theatre, based in Liberty Station, is onsite creating, rehearsing and performing new routines in response to the airport environment. Dances, movement patterns, and music selection are influenced by the artworks in the airport’s public art collection as well as the history and geography of the San Diego region. Blindspot Collective, a San Diego-based theatre company devoted to immersive programming, was selected as the airport’s fall performing arts residency group. Beginning in July, the company will work collaboratively with the airport, local artists and community groups to develop short plays inspired by SAN and its visitors. Each play will be between 10-15 minutes, and performed in multiple locations throughout the airport. Temporary exhibitions Forces of Nature, the Airport Arts Program’s 2019 temporary exhibition is now on full display. The exhibition features artwork and collections that explore the complexity, fragility, and beauty of San Diego’s natural landscape. The yearlong airport-wide exhibition features distinct installations by 16 different artists and organizations. Exhibition highlights include: · Glittering mini universe sculptures created by Sasha Koozel Reibstein, in direct response to the brilliant and diverse landscapes of San Diego; · Immersive plant installations by botanical artist Britton Neubacher showcase the inherent artistry in nature, encouraging the viewer to look from the perspective of the natural world; · Suspended cardboard sharks painstakingly constructed from hundreds of precisely cut pieces of cardboard and flat reed individually fit and glued together by artist William Feeney. DesignAHEAD, a SAN Arts Program initiative launched in 2018 to engage the next generation of innovators, designers and artists, invites high school and college students to tackle real-world design challenges faced in the airport environment. Participating classes visit the airport for a public art and terminal tour, and take part in design charrettes related to a specific project. The students ultimately develop a project for an airport site that will enhance the experience of the traveling public.  The latest collaboration between the University of San Diego and SAN is now on display in Terminal 2 through the end of July. The program offered beginning and advanced painting students an opportunity to create original artwork in varied media inspired by the airport and broader San Diego region over the course of several months. The resulting pieces range from inventive representations of the inner workings of the airport to imagery depicting regional wildlife with special consideration toward how travelers use the terminal space. Public art  “Oh lovely desert, I worry about you,” by San Diego-based artist Adriene Hughes, is the latest work in the Admiral Boland Way mural series. Located on the north side of the airport campus, the temporary mural offers a dramatic, panoramic view of the Anza Borrego desert using infrared photography. The work illuminates the desert’s plant life in vivid pink hues, and also calls attention to the impact of prolonged drought on the region. The 144-feet long mural is composed of 45 separate photographs digitally stitched together to create a sprawling collage that references the tradition of landscape photography. The mural will be on display through February 2020. Airport Arts Master Plan Following a comprehensive effort spanning nearly two years, the Airport Authority Board approved a new Arts Master Plan for the airport on March 14. The Master Plan outlines recommendations for the future of the three core components of the Arts Program. It also recommends priorities for communications, customer and community engagement, and evaluation. Additionally, the plan focuses on possible artwork and programming infrastructure for upcoming capital projects at the airport, specifically the proposed Airport Development Plan (ADP). It also considers the role of the program beyond when there are no major capital projects on the horizon. The Arts Master Plan was developed through ongoing consultation with the Airport’s Arts Advisory Committee and many Airport Authority and ADP stakeholder groups. From the onset of the project, staff and the consultant team worked in collaboration with stakeholders to ensure alignment with SAN’s goals around customer experience and engagement with the broader community, as articulated in the Airport’s five-year Strategic Plan. The Master Plan project also required collaboration with external stakeholders, including representatives from visual and performing arts and educational organizations throughout the region.  The planning process involved extensive research and multiple phases, including interviews and roundtable meetings, intercept and online surveys, benchmarking and preliminary studies. All in all, more than 200 internal and external stakeholders were engaged, over 650 surveys were completed, and 18 airport and transit arts programs were benchmarked.  For more information about the Airport Arts Program, visit arts.san.org/.
