The Department of Labor has asked Nooner to settle out of court with NASSCO for $40,000.

From one accident at NASSCO to another

Nooner was standing in the stairwell. Nooner’s partner stood below him on the ladderlike stairs, ready to hand up any necessary tools. Unknown to the two men intent on the hatch hinges, the constant pounding of the nearby chipper was causing the two locking pins in the support stanchions to straighten out.

A major fare increase in 1978 and another in 1979 (fare for local service is now fifty cents) caused a decline in the number of riders.

Kathy Huffer: "I had a vague notion that UCSD was a science school, but I certainly didn’t know it was as oriented that way as it is."

The downsides of San Diego's mostly science school

She told me that UCSD is a socially fragmented school, “without a tie to bring students together. It’s not a friendly university. Seventy-five percent of the students live off campus, and there’s no housing close in. There’s no commercial district nearby, either. You can’t walk to La Jolla!"
