Toronto real estate giant is funder behind killing height limitJust in time, we hope, for Reader-readers to VOTE NO on Proposition E and to spread the word.

Toronto real estate giant is funder behind killing height limit"[We are proud that this effort did not originate with big developers or corporate interests. Measure E was created by the community, for the community.]" Thank you for this excellent reporting exposing the claims of the 'Yes on E' spoxes as the shameless lies they are. : https://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/opinion/commentary/story/2020-09-29/sd-measure-e-yes-sports-arenaRescueHillcrest

Carl DeMaio pursues Todd Gloria for sex offender billSorry Matt, you lost me in there somewhere. Lots of facts not well organized. Perhaps if you had a separate paragraph for each fund showing where their money came from, and what the donor's intention was. It might look odd in the Reader, but a spreadsheet format might even be helpful. This is great information ...swell

Driving a Pinto like it’s a PorscheI remember the better days, when Morena was a cheaper costing, lower-key-profiled location. (rather rated as 'run-down', by the typical public) Now, via the structure of the image shown here, Morena is in for a neighborhood change. AND will get more expensive. Frontage roads are never seem popular by those who drive cars..ised

State density rules squeezing Del Mar into a cornerRich old Del Mar just cannot have things the way that its residents want. It has a busy, noisy rail line that "shouldn't" be there running right along the bluffs. And now it might have to make room for more residents and, worse yet, some affordable housing units. Never mind that the number of such ...Visduh

Sources to what the other/s have in common with the first/controversial person. In our county, the typical mood of someone is proven by how his/her car is driven (or ...ised

Cavalier Mobile Home owners vs. the rest of the neighborhoodOPD information officer Tom Bussey of the OPD just got back to me. He said that no one has filed any complaints with the OPD re threatened violence or property damage against residents of the Stewart Street neighborhood.

Cavalier Mobile Home owners vs. the rest of the neighborhoodThe link for the fundraiser doesn't go to Mike's page. Please change that if possible. His Cavalier neighbors are very concerned about him because he's still on a ventilator and in critical condition. https://www.facebook.com/donate/664788354173009/10223510513418758/digsblues

Ups and downs of Oceanside Harbor(since decades of time), Too many who live in San Diego city/county only think of/for THEMSELVES, FOR THEIR ADVANTAGE.

Who Needs Halloween?WHY does Faulkner want "cancellation" of what be "Halloween" ? For so long local bureaucracies rely on this (originally to be a kids) annual day of fun ---- for the local gvmnt's sake of REVENUE/TAXES. With the current Covid we are in, local bureaucracies are wanting to make as much revenue as they can earn. ...ised

David Alvarez gets National City gigDavid was a rising star locally and then fell by the wayside. Has anyone else wondered how things would have gone in San Diego if he, and not Kev-boy, was elected? Could anyone have done worse? Just about everything that the incumbent has touched has turned to sh__. Could anyone have done a worse job ...Visduh

National City clerk’s job up for grabs in big money campaignHaving read through the article more than once, it isn't obvious just why this minor elective position in a minor city should be a big, expensive fight. Anyone care to make it clear? I'm not disputing Matt's (this was Potter's reporting, wasn't it?) description: it's just the motivation that I can't discern. My suspicion is ...Visduh

Joseph Mitchell’s and Joe Gould’s SecretThanks for this! I think when I read that part of Lepore the first time, I assumed that what was in the trunks was just more of Gould's rewritings of the same few essays over and over again.

Joseph Mitchell’s and Joe Gould’s SecretI really enjoyed reading this thoughtful piece. I too have struggled with how to reconcile Mitchell's claim that his profiles are accurate depictions of real people with his use of composites and extended quotations that are manifestly too long for him to have written down verbatim. But I have to say that I came away ...charlespeveritt
