Parking spots in La Jolla are not worth fighting over

Photo by J. Beletsis

On Saturday, July 12, a young lady stood in defiance as she held a parking spot for her friend. She challenged the driver, who was trying to park, to run her over. He eventually left. In my opinion, people should quit this practice, it leaves a bad taste. Whichever car gets there first has right of way to that space!

FRONTLINE CANCER: The value of Comprehensive Cancer Centers

Dr. Scott Lippman

It’s estimated that approximately 14 million Americans alive today have had cancer. Some are cancer-free; some are still fighting it. This year, they will be joined by another 1.6 million persons who will receive that fearful diagnosis. The grim news, of course, is that the ranks of cancer patients are also trimmed each year by death: More than 585,000 annually, a rate second only to heart disease nationally (but first in San Diego).

Three cheers for seagulls! They are a godsend to man

seagull chick at lifeguard station 5

Surely you knew that the “seagull chick” article on your front page last week would elicit a strong response from the small handful of La Jollans who think the Earth was created solely for them. However, I am proud that our city did the right thing in taking a stand for this helpless little chick (and halting lifeguard tower construction until it was able to fly away.) In so doing, the city not only helped the baby seagull, it also helped us.
