    Pacific Beach Planning Group nixed a proposed moratorium on electric scooters at their meeting in September. The planning group voted against the moratorium following a debate between board members. Bill Zent, author of the petition scooterban.com, advocated barring scooters region-wide. Immediate past president of Pacific Beach Planning Group Henish Pulickal defended scooters, claiming their benefits outweigh their detriments. “We need to get away from car worship and focus on shifting to something else (alternative transport),” Pulickal said. Mayoral candidate and District 1 Council President Pro tem Barbara Bry has called for a moratorium on scooter proliferation until the City can catch up on properly regulating them. She also intends to re-introduce a ban on scooters on boardwalks, that failed once before, this October. Zent’s petition over the past few weeks has easily surpassed its goal of obtaining 1,000 signatures supporting scooter expulsion. The petition drive has also solicited scores of comments from signers explaining their rationale for ousting or more strictly regulating the scooters. Zent led off the debate with a laundry list of complaints about scooters alleging lack of proper enforcement, inadequate containment corrals, and users ignoring regulations. “I support a moratorium because scooters are adversely affecting home values, with some corrals even being sited below people’s bedrooms,” Zent said.  Noting his scooter petition page has received 21,000 views, Zent contended scooters “are causing clutter all over the beach and pose safety threats from tandem, underage and intoxicated riding.” Zent also disputed the claim that scooters are environmentally friendly. “It takes two trips (by fossil-fueled cars) to pick them up to recharge and return them,” he pointed out. “I’m the voice for the silent majority,” countered Pulickal, likening the advent of scooters to early bikes replacing horses.  “Back in the 1860s horses died because of a famine in Europe and the number of people owning bikes went from one million to 10 million,” he said. “People then were arguing they were a menace to society, scaring women and children.” Conceding scooters have been problematic, Pulickal nonetheless argued progress is being made in regulating them. “They’re less intrusive now and managing them is getting better,” he said, contending the government needs to keep up with technology. “Change is happening quickly,” he said. “We need to move at the speed of business, the speed of people — not the speed of government.” Other board members weighed in. “I wouldn’t vote for a ban,” said Marcella Bothwell. “They’re innovative. This has really been a missed opportunity. We’re all a big experimental lab.” “I agree with the points made by both sides,” said Ed Gallagher. “The question before us should be, What is the best way to move this forward most effectively?” Eve Anderson suggested it might be necessary to “take a step back in looking at regulations and reducing the number of scooters and scooter companies.” “Micro mobility is here to stay,” argued Steve Pruett. “This has not been properly vetted,” said Scott Chipman. “A moratorium might force the issue. We are the most impacted community by far.” “This is a step in the right direction,” said Junior Leoso. Joe Bettles questioned the wisdom of voting on a proposed moratorium that is presently little more than a campaign promise. “The only way to get scooters and bikes off the sidewalks is to provide safe spaces on the streets,” said Paula Gandolfo. Zent proposed voting in favor of Bry’s proposed scooter moratorium. That motion was defeated by a board vote of 4-6-1.

    What garbage!!! 'Pacific Beach Planning Group Henish Pulickal defended scooters, claiming their benefits outweigh their detriments. “We need to get away from car worship and focus on shifting to something else (alternative transport),” Pulickal said. . . . “I’m the voice for the silent majority,” countered Pulickal, likening the advent of scooters to early bikes replacing horses.' The claim to a silent majority is frivolous and likely known to be so. The claim to a car alternative is e-trash cartel disinformation; it's primarily a joy-riding alternative to walking. Shame on Pulickal. It's also a mere fad.

    Growing up in the suburbs of a Northeastern city in the 1980s meant tacos came out of a box shelved in the “international” aisle at a grocery store. One day a week – usually Wednesdays – we were exposed to “tacos” with greasy ground beef, shredded iceberg lettuce and mounds of mozzarella stuffed into delicate hard shells. It was a fun mess and about as close to Mexican food as we got. But, like tacos, we evolve.  Just last weekend we were ordering al pastor tacos in the busiest, noisiest, and probably, best taco spot in Tijuana. Tacos El Franc is a must-visit for any fan of the authentic street taco – the ambiance, the smells, and the flavors can’t be beat.  But up here in the beach communities of San Diego, National Taco Day (Oct. 4) is celebrated a little differently as local restaurants think outside of the box. There are cauliflower tacos, vampire tacos and even poke tacos – and we tasted them all.  Our tasters, known for their taco infatuations, were Danielle Radin, digital anchor, and producer for Fox 5, and Jenny Milkowski, traffic anchor at CBS News 8. They tried and rated (on a scale of 0 to 5 tacos) a variety of tacos at Oscar’s Mexican Seafood, Backyard Kitchen & Tap, El Prez, and Duck Dive.  “I think I’ve tried every kind of taco – from tongue to stomach, to head tacos. I’ll taste anything at least once,” Jenny said.   “You had me at tacos,” Danielle said. “If we’re tasting tacos, I’m always ready to eat.” Their conclusions, along with a summary of some of the best taco spots from La Jolla to Point Loma, are below.  Oscar’s Mexican Seafood 703 Turquoise St. Oscar’s specializes in seafood tacos such as battered fish or shrimp tacos, smoked fish tacos, or grilled octopus tacos. Oscar’s also offers specialty tacos like tacos al pastor, shrimp, and chorizo tacos, and even shrimp and bacon tacos. Vegetarians can enjoy veggie tacos and soyrizo tacos. At Oscar’s, Jenny tried the smoked fish and Danielle had the grilled octopus. “First bite, I was like, yum,” Jenny said. “But I wish there was more fish and it had a smokier flavor. It was good. I rate it 3 out of 5 tacos.”  “It was really good, zesty with a good texture, which is hard to do with octopus,” Danielle said. “I liked it and I recommend it. I rate it 4.8 out of 5 tacos.” Backyard Kitchen & Tap 832 Garnet Ave. This American gastropub serves some of Pacific Beach’s best tacos. Choose from Backyard’s fun taco plates such as the Garnet Vampire, which is slow-roasted pork carnitas, pico de gallo, and cotija on a cheddar crusted corn tortilla, and the Gringo, which is chipotle chicken, cabbage, and jalapeno crema on a crispy corn hard shell. At Backyard, Jenny and Danielle tried both the Gringo and Garnet Vampire tacos. “The Gringo taco has a hard shell with a lot of chipotle-flavored chicken and it was OK,” Jenny said. “The Vampire taco was juicy and filled with delicious pork. You’re not going to walk away hungry after one, but who am I kidding, I would eat two. I like it a lot. I rate them 3 out of 5 tacos.”  “This Vampire one was filled with a lot of pork and authentic flavors,” Danielle said. “It’s huge, so one will get you full. Going from the pork to the Gringo taco was like night and day. I like the crunch of the hard shell and it had a good sauce. I rate them 3 out of 5 tacos.”  El Prez 4190 Mission Blvd. El Prez throws a taco-filled fiesta everyday. Guests can choose from more than 13 different types of tacos served in freshly-made tortillas. Favorite El Prez tacos include seared ahi tacos, cauliflower tacos, and filet mignon tacos. Jenny tried the cauliflower tacos and Danielle had the chicken tinga tacos.  “It was pretty good, but I didn’t like that the cauliflower was fried because I like to feel that I’m being healthy,” Jenny said. “It had good spice and the crema was tasty – I liked it. I rate it 3 out of 5 tacos.”  “It has fried cheese on top, which threw me off at first and it was big – kind of an aggressive taco,” Danielle said. “It was really good and mango salsa gave it a sweet and savory taste that I enjoyed. I rate it 3.5 out of 5 tacos.” Duck Dive 4650 Mission Blvd.  Duck Dive and its ambiance is an ode the rich surf and beach culture that resides just steps away from the Pacific Ocean. Their menu takes on classic American dishes as well as a coastal favorites. They serve the usual fish and carne asada tacos but offer a twist with the poke taco with a wonton shell. Jenny and Danielle both tried the poke tacos. “I got super excited to try these because I love ahi tuna,” Jenny said. “The wonton shell is big and the lettuce is not necessary. It’s a fun new taco and I liked it. I rate it 3 out of 5 tacos.” “The wonton had a good texture, the sauce is really good and the poke went well with it all,” Danielle said. “It is something new and different. I liked it. I rate it 3 out of 5 tacos.” Vallarta Express 1375 Garnet Ave. With Vallarta Express’ 24/7 service, guests can order tacos at any time of the day. Guests can also order tacos through the drive-thru. Some of Vallarta’s many taco options include favorites like shrimp or carne asada tacos and more adventurous choices like the Philly Taco, which includes a choice of steak or chicken with melted cheese, mushrooms, peppers, bacon, and salsa; or the Buffalo Taco, which includes lightly breaded chicken, buffalo sauce, romaine lettuce, ranch dressing, and salsa Fresca.

    It’s almost that time of year, where spooky scares and monster mashes take over and Thriller San Diego is ready to get the party started. Beginning as sporadic zombie dance flash mobs on the PB boardwalk, Thriller San Diego has grown from small pockets of friends performing random bouts of bloody dance sequences, to an organized group of teachers and dancers dedicated to teaching San Diegan’s the moves to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.” “People really have fun getting dressed up as zombies,” said Larisa Hall, one of Thriller SD’s dance teachers, who offers free Thriller classes at her Pacific Beach dance studio, Tap Fever. “You can make a zombie outfit out of pretty much any costume — you can be a zombie bride, a zombie nurse, a zombie cheerleader, anything. People always have fun and get creative with it, even during class.” Thriller SD has more than half a dozen instructors teaching wannabe-zombie-dancers the moves to Jackson’s most iconic dance. The classes are free, with a suggested $5 donation, and take place all over San Diego, from Pacific Beach to Coronado and La Mesa to Balboa Park. Another teacher, Christopher Olson, even teaches classes in his overly-sized driveway in El Cajon. “I’m a hairstylist by day, and a special effects zombie make-up artist and dancer by night,” said Olson who has been a part of Thriller SD for seven years. “I had no idea this was going to blow up and become almost like a full-time job on the side, but it’s so fun and I love it.” Another Thriller SD teacher, Denise Pocholski, added: “Growing up, my fantasy was to be able to perform Thriller. A lot of other people in San Diego must share that fantasy because every year we have new people, young and old, join Thriller SD to learn the dance.” The group also hosts classes at San Diego’s downtown library, where they teach the Thriller dance to school kids and those at the youth center who are homeless. “It gives them something to look forward to and lets them know that you can do anything you want to do and be anything you want to be,” said Olson. “It opens up their world.” While classes can be as large as 20 students, Thriller SD has seen its biggest growth in the dance groups’ monthly, and sometimes weekly, Thriller events ranging from zombie dances at the UTC offices and private parties, to performances at community gatherings like October’s Monster Movies for Music and Pacific BeachFest. Thriller SD will host a Zombie Walk at Pacific BeachFest Oct. 5 starting at the corner of Garnet and Ingraham. The group will also have a wagon in tow, with a boombox playing Halloween music. At 5 p.m., Thriller SD will also be performing the Thriller dance at Pacific BeachFest’s main stage. “Every year, people just get so excited about it,” said Hall. “They’ll run up to us even if they don’t know all the moves and will try to dance along. It’s fun. It’s ‘thrilling.’” But with over 1,000 spectators and more than 200 dancers, Thriller SD’s biggest event of the year is the annual Old Town Thriller. On Oct. 19, the group of undead dancers will be performing in Old Town for the eighth year in a row at Heritage Park. “Despite the news and the documentaries that have come out about Michael Jackson, people still love the dance and this music,” said Hall. “It’s never not going to be iconic and there’s still something to appreciate about a dance that gets people excited to put on a crazy costume and dance with total strangers.” To sign up for classes, register for events or make a donation, visit Thriller San Diego’s Facebook page or go to tapfever.com/thriller.

    Girls volleyball The Bucs are 5-3 in early-season play for head coach Steve Upp. “We have two more weeks of non-league matches and our tough Eastern League schedule starts at Coronado on Sept. 24,” Upp noted.  According to Upp, senior Chloe Gallegos is leading the team early on in service aces and senior middle blocker Cassidy West is leading the team with blocks.  Girls tennis Under head coach, Trong Tong, the Bucs come into play this week with an overall record of 4-1 and 4-0 in league play. According to Tong, Mission Bay has been led to date by Ryan Stone (singles), Rosina Valia (singles), Gwen Lundstrom (singles), Amanda Edmunds (doubles) and Sonja Cayetano (doubles). “We're off to a great start by being undefeated in league play thus far,” Tong commented. “Although our singles have been stellar, our doubles are getting more consistent results as the lineup is solidifying after having experimented with various pairings. “Under the guidance of our seven starting seniors, four of our freshmen players are showing promising potentials. Hopefully, we can keep pace so we could set our sights closer to our very first league championship title.” Boys sand volleyball The Buccaneers, under head coach Nikki Caufield, opened the season with a pair of narrow losses to Scripps Ranch and Cathedral Catholic, respectively.  Caufield said of the first two matches: "Against Scripps Ranch we won two matches in two games, lost a close match in two games and then lost two matches in the third match tiebreaker. Against Cathedral Catholic all five varsity matches went to the third game tiebreaker with the Bucs picking up only one win.  “If we can just figure out how to win the third game tiebreaker to 15 we'll be great. So far, sophomores Will Francis and Aric Johnson are undefeated as our fourth seed. Seniors Ian Briski and Dusty Schraeder have been playing really well." The junior varsity posted winning records against both Scripps Ranch and Cathedral Catholic, respectively.  On another note, the on-campus sand volleyball courts are nearly complete and the team is still looking for additional fundraising to complete the courts.  Anyone wishing to donate should email Caufield at niknjeff@aol.com.   Field hockey Mission Bay comes into action this week with a mark of 1-2. “Sam Ford is a senior who is our injector for short corners,” head coach Kris Auer commented. “She has brought much needed consistency to her position. Goalie Mckenzie Nuemann has been very solid in her first three games. “Our team is in every game, but we have only one win. We need to ratchet up our intensity to a varsity level. Once we do that, look out.” Boys water polo Mission Bay won its first match of the season (versus Clairemont) for head coach Lyndsay Sutterley. The Buccaneers have been led early on by Kyle Baker and Alex Branch, according to Sutterley. “We have some upperclassmen that are really stepping into leadership roles early in the season,” Sutterley said. “We are excited to use this energy as we transition into the beginning of our season.”

    Please ignore my previous testimonial. My herpes returned with a vengeance. I asked Dr Ahmed for a refund for his magic potion but he told me to go pound sand.
