Mayor declares May 28 ‘End of Poop Day’ in La Jolla
Thank you Mayor Bob Filner for tackling the nauseating problem that has been plaguing residents, visitors, pedestrians, runners, diners and businesses in La Jolla for almost two years — the horrid stench along the beautiful Cove coastline caused by the bird and marine mammal excrement aggregating on the cliffs.
Burrowing through the maze of department reports, regulations, commission prohibitions and politics, you initiated a cleanup, which, if we all had the day off on Tuesday, we’d be standing shoulder to shoulder along the Cove to applaud.
Bravo! Just let us know what you need to keep the ball rolling on an effective, ongoing maintenance plan.
Thank you’s are also in order to the La Jollans working behind the scenes with the mayor to bring about the cleanup: George Hauer, with his petition to draw attention to the issue (more than 1,500 signatures strong); point man Mark Evans; Phil Coller, president of the La Jolla Village Merchants Association; Mark Dibella of La Valencia Hotel; and District 1 City Councilmember Sherri Lightner.
The Light has been reporting on the Cove stench, which eventually made international headlines, for almost two years. Tuesday, May 28, 2013 became the red-letter day of victory. Hurray! Let the good times roll again and the Cove be restored to the pristine sanctuary it has always been to those lucky enough to experience its magnificence.
