Ruth Mitchell, a local author, recently wrote a science fiction book set in and around University City. Her book “Deleted”is a speculative young adult novel set in the near future. In this book, described as “Inception” meets “Wargames,” a couple of UCSD students discover how to hack into people’s memories. There is also a love story, some adventure, science and reflection. 

Anyone familiar with University City will recognize landmarks and enjoy the prominent role the setting takes in this book. Pursued by the hacker who has erased her from everyone’s memory, the main character spends a lot of time hiding in Rose and Marian Bear Canyons. 

Mitchell has lived in University City since 2005, is a former reporter turned stay-at-home mom, and researched her novel by tapping into the talent of our community. She consulted professors from UCSD and computer scientists who worked for the military and Qualcomm. “Deleted” is described by one Goodreads reviewer as “a fresh story with intense action, sweet romance, super cool science, and great themes” and is now available for purchase on Amazon. If your book club is interested in having the author attend your meeting, you can email her at ruthannmitch@gmail.com.

Agendas and supporting documents for the meetings can be found at the plan update website, planuniversity.org. During the last meeting, public comments and agenda items included:

Concerns over the UC Villages Golf Course destruction of habitat, trees, and bulldozing of part of the golf course. Several attendees requested that the plan update require this be kept as a golf course or open space and not be allowed to be rezoned for housing.

It's awesome and amazing. My name is Tony Orela am from the United States Getting my husband back is what i least expected and could never imagine. I and my husband have been married for five years and we have been living happily but all of a sudden he changed completely and turned away from me but i never knew what was going on, and i tried to ask him but he refused to tell me what the problem is, and as time went on he sought for a divorce. I was so worried and confused. During my search for a way out, a friend of mine who had similar problem told me about a great spell caster called Dr Uzoya who helped her with her situation. I never use to believe in spell casting in my entire life because i never thought it will work but i tried to give this man a chance and to my greatest surprise Dr Uzoya got me a positive result and he was able to get my husband back to me. After the spell caster did his work, i discovered that my husband fell so much in love with me unlike before. This spell casting isn't brain washing but he opened up his eyes to see how much i love and needed him. Now i am a happy woman again and I don't know how am going to thank Dr Uzoya so i am using this opportunity to tell anyone having similar problem to visit him on driraborspellcaster@gmail.com his telephone number is  1(301)909-8775
