San Diego internees, Poston, Arizona, mostly old people and children.
  • Japanese railroaded out of San Diego during WWII

  • "There’s still some. People I went to school with in Coronado before the war, I see them at work; they still don’t speak to me. It’s like the fact that we were evacuated proved we were guilty." (October 20, 1977)
The evacuation from Warner's Ranch to Pala. "We have always been here. We do not care for any other place. It may be good but is not ours. There is no other place for us."
  • Survivors

  • She stops at the grave of Yellow Sky, something of a legend among the Indians of Barona. He used to walk the desert between Yuma and San Diego wearing only a breach cloth, trading firewood for a meal. (April 21, 1977)
Of the 250 known species of sharks about 30 can be found in and around the waters of San Diego.
  • The better to eat you with my dear!

  • On July 25, 1975, while the movie of Peter BenchJey’s Jaws was playing to a full house in Mission Valley, Brian Hawthorne, owner of the 60-fool San Diego swordfish boat Heather B., was busy harpooning his own Jaws, a 12'6" Great White off Catalina Island, 20 miles northwest of San Diego County. (Jan. 20, 1977)
OB protest of SDG&E at corner of Voltaire and Sunset Cliffs. “No Way, We Won’t Pay,” some 50 local demonstrators are chanting for three of the four local TV news cameras.
The rocket booster, along with the missile’s warhead, is attached to the vehicle to make a “fully capsulated bird" under tight military security in the Sycamore Canyon area of Convair’s plant.
  • The birds of war

  • Last month, on December 14, the San Diego-based, nuclear-powered submarine USS Guitarro lay in deep water near San Clemente Island, northwest of here. A stainless-steel capsule, resembling a giant twenty-two-foot cigar humidor, was loaded into one of its torpedo tubes. Captain Scott van Hoften gave the order to fire. (January 7, 1982)
A starlight night-viewing scope runs around $75,000.
  • If they want to have a war the Marines want to fight it

  • We’re sitting at the bar rail in the officers’ club at Twentynine Palms. It’s crowded with desert-tanned Marines in camouflage utilities and combat boots. Johnny Paycheck’s “Take This Job and Shove It’’ is playing. (May 29, 1980)
