POINT LOMA — Mayor Jerry Sanders and other top city officials will pay a visit to Point Loma High School on Monday, Oct. 25 as part of a series of town hall meetings to discuss proposed city budget cuts for fiscal year 2012 — and to field residents’ concerns and ideas.

Eight town hall forums are planned to discuss budget impacts stemming from Sanders’ mandate to each city department to identify specific cuts that would help close a projected budget gap of $72 million for FY 2012.

The event at Point Loma High, located at 2335 Chatsworth Blvd., is slated to run from 6 to 7 p.m. in the school’s auditorium.

Participants in the town hall series include Chief Operating Officer Jay Goldstone; Police Chief William Lansdowne; Fire Chief Javier Mainar; library director Deborah Barrow; Park and Recreation Department director Stacey LoMedico; Dave Jarrell, Deputy Chief Operating Officer of the Public Works Department; and Chief Financial Officer Mary Lewis.

For information, call the Office of the Mayor at (619) 236-6330, or visit

Our Federal Government has interest rates way way low which in many ways sounds like a good idea. However folks mostly retired that depend on some interest for income on their life savings are in real trouble. If you were retired would you take a chance on the stock market? Not with my life savings are you as nutty as the economy? There is a great article that addresses the results of the above mentioned in I believe the author goes by artdeco. My point is that all this is interrelated, how do we get out without too much inflation.
