    LOCAL MAN STARTS CLEAN-UP MOVEMENT AT PACIFIC AND MISSION BEACHES Adam Huntington (right) is convinced it has become necessary for beach communities to take matters into their own hands in cleaning up and maintaining landscaped medians. A loan consultant, Huntington has become something of a beach clean-up crusader. He has begun rattling the cages of City Hall, and anyone else he can buttonhole, to see if there’s anything that can be done to streamline and improve maintaining landscaping in medians and other public spaces in Mission and Pacific beaches. Huntington is using all forms of social media to try and get his message across, posting videos on Facebook, titled “Fix The Beach: Part 2, and Instagram (@loans_and_drones). Huntington’s Facebook video shows him standing in a weed-infested median in the heart of Mission Beach in between Saska’s steakhouse and Gone Bananas boutique. “These took several years to grow,” notes Huntington in the video pointing out large, untended scraggly weeds. “Either somebody’s not reporting these weeds that need to be manicured, or somebody doesn’t care. It also tells me that somebody hasn’t cared — or done anything — in several years. This is ridiculous. “There’s no reason for this,” continues Huntington in the video referencing discarded cigarette butts littering the median he’s standing in. “We (San Diego) have $2.7 million for weed abatement.” An additional video on Instagram depicts time-lapse images of local residents sweeping sand off the boardwalk and Mission Bay path. Huntington has also extended this open-ended offer to the City: “Let me borrow a few weed-whackers from Rose Canyon and our neighborhood will do it (median cleaning) for you like we swept the boardwalk,” Huntington said, adding, “I’m happy to organize and help y’all, but we pay property taxes for this type of thing and we are not here to do your job ‘every’ weekend like this.” Concludes Huntington, “We want plans, schedules, and work completed properly in a timely manner. Anything less than this is not acceptable.” VANDALISM AT BEACH FORCING CHANGES The lifeguard tower in Pacific Beach may be having its flagpole removed due to continued vandalism allegedly committed by the homeless.  The most-recent act involved tying trash cans to the halyard rope, which was raised up the flagpole. In the past few months, the halyard has been cut twice, and other trash tied to the rope. Worst of all, the American flag itself was pulled down from the flagpole on one occasion.  “When we resort to taking down a flagpole and not flying the American flag at a government facility, we’re basically signaling that we’ve surrendered to the homeless and are allowing them to have free rein over an area that is for all to enjoy,” said a whistleblower requesting anonymity. MAYORAL CANDIDATES TO DEBATE AT MBHS Pacific Beach Town Council is hosting a mayoral candidate forum on coastal issues for the beach and bay communities on Wednesday, Sept. 18 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Mission Bay High School Auditorium, 2475 Grand Ave. Participating organizations include Ocean Beach Town Council, Mission Beach Town Council, Point Loma Association, Clairemont Town Council, Pacific Beach Planning Group, Save San Diego Neighborhoods, Ocean Beach Planning Board, San Diego Lifeguards, Surfrider San Diego, San Diego Coastkeeper and SavePB. The campaign for the mayor's office kicked off in early January 2019, when San Diego City Council president pro tem Barbara Bry and California State Assemblymember Todd Gloria officially announced their candidacies. They were joined in the race later that month by community activist Tasha Williamson, who works with families who’ve lost members from police violence. Activist attorney Cory Briggs, displeased by Mayor Kevin Faulconer’s loosening of development restrictions, also announced his bid for mayor in January, but reconsidered dropping out by May. One of the early issues distinguishing the candidates was housing policy, with Bry favoring strong local control over land use, while Gloria prefers statewide efforts to increase housing supply. The non-partisan 2020 San Diego Mayoral primary election is March 3, with the general election on Nov. 3 to replace termed-out incumbent Mayor Kevin Faulconer. THE HEART OF PB RESTAURANT WALK The Heart of PB Restaurant Walk is Sept. 11 from 4 to 9 p.m. Sponsored by Discover PB, the community’s business improvement district, the walk showcases the beach community’s finest culinary delights.  This year, attendees will enjoy a leisurely stroll on this self-guided food tour of 20 restaurants in the heart of PB between Dawes and Lamont streets. Sample a variety of menus from local restaurants. Bring your appetite. All food is included at this popular annual event.   Spend the last days of summer with friends and family by enjoying the best of Pacific Beach’s eclectic and international cuisine. This event will be vegetarian friendly, and restaurants that offer a vegetarian option will be noted on the map.   New this year to the restaurant walk are Powerhaus Pizza, 55 Thai, Hoboken Pizza and Mr Shawarma Food Truck. Other participating eateries include: Barrel Republic, Broken Yolk Café, Café Athena, Costa Brava, Freshii, Hammond’s Gourmet Ice Cream, Moonshine Beach, Mr Frosties, PB Cantina, PB Fish Shop, SD Taproom, Tavern at the Beach, Vallarta Express, Woodstock’s Pizza and Yogurt on the Rocks. In honor of September 11th Remembrance Day, an additional donation option has been added for those choosing to add to their ticket price. One hundred percent of those donations will go to the Pacific Beach Fire Station 21. Cost is $25 pre-sale, $30 the day of the event. For more information, visit pacificbeach.org.  Discover PB is a nonprofit organization dedicated to revitalizing and promoting the Pacific Beach community physically and economically. LOCAL SURFERS TO PARTICIPATE IN ANNUAL 100 WAVE CHALLENGE Scheduling conflicts won't keep local surfers Rodger Dougherty and Chris Probasco from participating in the 10th Annual 100 Wave Challenge Saturday, Sept. 8, beginning at 6 a.m. at Tourmaline Surf Park. When Boys to Men Mentoring Network's annual surf-a-thon hits the waves of Mission Beach on Saturday, Sept. 21, the two wave warriors already will have completed the Herculean feat, while raising several thousand dollars for an organization dedicated to guiding disconnected, often fatherless, boys on their journey to adulthood. Although approaching their day in the water from different perspectives (Dougherty is a 10-year veteran; Probasco will participate in the 100 Wave Challenge for the first time) these determined watermen will be united in a common purpose: Surfing their hearts out for the boys of Boys to Men Mentoring Network. BEACH ADVISORIES ISSUED FOR MISSION BAY, SHELTER ISLAND, AND LA JOLLA San Diego County officials recently announced beach advisories and one beach closure on Sept. 6. Unhealthy bacteria levels in the water triggered advisories issued along Shoreline Park at Shelter Island, Fiesta Island (Northwest Shoreline), La Jolla Cove beachline, La Jolla’s Children's Pool, and Mission Bay’s Leisure Lagoon (Comfort Station swim area) and North Cove (Vacation Isle). A beach closure was issued for the shoreline between the U.S.-Mexico border and the north end of the Tijuana Slough National Wildlife Refuge due to sewage-contaminated water.

    Kitten Lady gets personal rescuing at-risk kittens in San Diego

    Two book releases in the last month, an appearance on Animal Planet, and two advocacy awards show not only how quickly Hannah Shaw has been able to make a name for herself in the public eye, but also the ripple effect of her high-energy and hands-on approach regarding kitten advocacy, rescue and education. “This has all happened much to my surprise and delight,” said Shaw, founder of the nonprofit Orphan Kitten Club, which provides lifesaving operations and the world’s first grant program specifically funding innovation in kitten welfare. “When people realize that these babies are all unique and so worthy of protection, I think that it gets a lot of people to go out and sign up to foster in their own communities.” Nicknamed the “Kitten Lady,” Shaw provides educational media and training resources on her website and social media, as well as instructional workshops, all to help individuals and animal shelters learn how to save the lives of kittens. “I wanted to create a fun community where people could see up close and personal what it looks like to rescue kittens, and also help people to feel like they know the individual animal,” said Shaw, who tries to share all the intimate moments she has with her rescued kittens, from helping them through a disease to helping them hit their first steps, making them hats or even writing songs about the kittens. “It hopefully helps with finding adopters and encouraging more fostering,” Working closely with the San Diego Humane Society, East County Animal Rescue and Love Your Feral Felines, Shaw has helped to rescue dozens of kittens (and two neonatal piglets) since moving from Washington to San Diego, including Flapjack, a malnourished orange tabby who was covered in fleas when Shaw and her team found him in Spring Valley. “Hannah has done a great deal for kittens all across the world through her humane education program, and now that Hannah is local to San Diego, we are proud to have her Orphan Kitten Club as a rescue partner,” said Jackie Noble, nursery manager at San Diego Humane Society. “Not only does OKC care for these kittens at their in-home Kitten Nursery, they also help out our community through their Full Circle TNR (trap-neuter-return) program. Talk about the ‘purr-fect’ partnership!” Though his brother didn’t survive, Flapjack regained his health and was the inspiration for Shaw’s new Full Circle Program, where Shaw and her nonprofit team go out and sterilize the family, or colony, of the kitten they rescue. “When we picked him up, we saw just how many cats there were in just his colony living as strays,” said Shaw. “These cats are coming into shelters at the rate that they are because there’s so many community cats outside. There’s no harsh winters in San Diego, so it’s kitten season year-round here.” Orphan Kitten Club also takes on cases where the kitten’s condition is more challenging, perhaps too challenging for the average shelter, such as their most recent addition to Shaw kitty nursery, the tuxedo kitten named Apple. Apple was born with Swimmer Syndrome so her hind legs spread out like a frog’s, inhibiting her from walking. For the next few weeks, Shaw will be wrapping and taping Apple’s legs so they can grow in a normal posture. “A lot of kittens like her are euthanized because she can’t walk, but with us she will get to live a normal life,” said Shaw. “We work with the kittens that no one else will.” Shaw is also a New York Times bestselling author, with her educational book on the U.S. kitten crisis “Tiny But Mighty.” Shaw also has an upcoming children’s book, “Kitten Lady’s Big Book of Little Kittens,” which releases Tuesday, Oct. 8. The book takes children through the life of foster kittens. Both books can be found at Barnes & Noble or on Shaw’s website, kittenlady.org. “It’s all a lot more personal for me now,” said Shaw, who had been an activist for many years but never planned on getting this hands-on with the work. “It’s not just theoretical. It’s not just data. You’re not just trying to convince people something matters because you read a statistic,” she said. You’re literally looking at a little life in the palm of your hand and knowing that there are so many other little lives like that who are out there in need of love and support and care. “That’s why, whenever I teach, I teach using stories. It’s not a theory, it’s a real kitten that you can hold and see and feel and that needs your help.” To apply to adopt any of Shaw’s rescues, visit orphankittenclub.org.

    Football This will be a challenging season for the Mission Bay High football team in more ways than one. First, the Bucs are dealing with the unexpected death of former head coach Dane Roman in late July Roman, who guided the Bucs last season to a 2-8 record in his first season at the helm, was found dead in his home by one of his assistant coaches after failing to report to practice. Second, the team has struggled the last few years, something Mission Bay coaches, players and fans hope to change starting this season. A.J. Vines has been named the new head football coach at the school. For Vines, this will be his first season as a head coach at Mission Bay. Vines had previously spent time with the Helix High football program. According to Vines, key players for the Bucs should include senior slotback/cornerback Evan Aguon, sophomore quarterback Clash Orsborn, senior linebacker/running back Mikey Moreno, junior wide receiver/running back/defensive back Payton Maul, senior lineman William Matkins, junior lineman Joseph Holt and junior wide receiver/defensive back Andrew Hutchison. “The goals I have for the team are very simple this year,” Vines said. “Let’s get great at what we do. Don’t focus on the outcomes we want, focus on what it takes to get the outcome we want. Play smart, play fast, play physical.” Vines expects all of the team’s games to be tough this year given the schedule, with Kearny, San Diego and La Jolla standing out. Mission Bay beat San Ysidro High, 20-14, in their season-opener on Aug. 23. The Bucs play at La Jolla 7 p.m. Friday, Aug. 30. Boys sand volleyball Head coach Nikki Caufield leads their fifth season of competition in early September. Last year’s team finished tied for second in league and ended up tied for third place in Division I. Mission Bay lost in the semifinals 3-2 to San Marcos.  "We return nine of the 10 boys from our top five varsity teams last year so we have an experienced squad returning,” Caufield stated. “We also have another nine to 10 returners from last year’s squad that will be competing to make the top five teams. So far we have eight to 10 freshmen that have come out this year so we are looking to have roughly 30 boys total on the squad."  According to Caufield, key returners are seniors Ian Briski and Dusty Schraeder from the No. 1 squad, seniors Cody Armstrong and Ryan Derry from the No. 2 squad and also seniors Jackson Priest, Jake Smrynos, Gabe Esquival. Top juniors include Andy Knight, Filippo Miticocchio and Alexis Vergnet; and Key sophomores are Aric Johnson, Jake Kepner, Kyle Alexander and Alex Morch. The Bucs are hoping to construct three courts on campus the first weekend in September and still need about $4,000 to fund the on-campus court construction.  Boys water polo The Bucs finished 13th in power rankings at the end of last season. According to head coach Lyndsay Sutterley, key players this fall look to include senior attacker Kyle Baker and junior attacker Alex Branch. “We have a lot of new players who we are excited to integrate into our program,” Sutterley commented. “The team is hungry for a CIF appearance and it is our goal to accomplish this. We are looking forward to a year of growth and highly competitive water polo.” Field hockey The Bucs, under head coach Kris Auer, were 7-9 a season ago and missed out on CIFs. Looking to this season, Auer noted key players should include senior midfielder Natailie Gousha and junior forward Karrin Evans. “This year we want to continue to grow our family culture while putting our best performances on the field,” Auer stated. “We are very proud of the young ladies who represent our school and our community each and every game. These are dynamic young leaders who embody a slice of all that is good about Mission Bay.” Mission Bay opens its season Aug. 30 versus La Jolla Country Day. Girls tennis The Bucs were 3-12 overall a season ago (2-10 league play) and didn’t make team CIFs for head coach Trong Tong. According to Tong, key singles players this season look to be senior Rosina Valia and sophomore Ryan Stone. Key doubles players are seniors Amanda Edmunds, Arielle Bardwil, Kira Axmann, Kylee Kropf, Sonja Cayetano and Sophia Gillenberg. “We just started tryouts, so player positions are still to be determined as we're beginning to tweak with our lineup,” Tong noted. “Although we lost a couple of returning players, our team is a bit more experienced this season as a huge majority of our starters will be seniors,” Tong said. “As another upside this year, our turnout thus far has been the biggest in my coaching tenure here at Mission Bay, which bodes well in creating the depth that we often need and replenishing our huge graduating class. Even though most of the new players are brand new to the sport, many of them are either freshmen or sophomores so they have plenty of time to improve. “Additionally, we've been reshuffled back into City League, which consists of all DIII teams this season. As such, I feel my following goals are as attainable as ever: qualifying for Team CIF, winning the league championship and sending at least there singles and/or doubles team into Individual CIF.” Mission Bay’s first match is Aug. 29 at Kearny. Girls volleyball The Bucs, under head coach Steve Upp, were 20-12 a season ago. They placed seventh in the Sweetwater Classic, second in the Aztec Invitational and second in their own Buc Bash. Mission Bay lost to a strong Sage Creek team in the first round of the CIFs, with Sage Creek going on to win Division II. “We are returning five starters from last year’s team and hope to compete for the Eastern League title,” Upp commented. Mission Bay’s first home match is Sept. 5 versus Helix. Cross country In cross country action, head coach Barry Dancher’s squads were a combined 9-4 a season ago. The boys went 6-1 and finished second in the City’s and City League, with the girls going 3-3. According to Dancher, leading boys’ returnees include seniors TK Berhe and Trevor Reichenberg and junior Fernando Ugarte. Berhe made it to the CIFSD finals in track last year. The girls are led by junior Gina Queck and senior Leilani Ferguson. Queck ran in the CIFSD finals last year in track. “We hope that we can win the boys' championship in our league this year and send several of our runners to the CIF Championships in Fresno,” Dancher said.
