Christmas On The Sand in Coronado
The relationship between Manchester, his newspaper and the Republican mayoral candidate has become one of the dominant themes of the election. The U-T ran two front-page editorials backing DeMaio in the primary. DeMaio’s opponent, Bob Filner, invokes Manchester so much on the trail that it would be easy to believe Manchester is the candidate, not DeMaio. Media outlets, including the U-T itself, have documented the connection between DeMaio and Manchester and its impact on the election.
Blame will be placed on Rivers, who completed 5 of 6 passes in the third quarter but then missed the mark on 9 of 18 passes in the fourth quarter including three interceptions in Monday’s 35-24 loss.
Blame will be placed on Rivers for not tucking the ball in on a third quarter sack which Denver returned 65-yards to make it a 10-point lead.
Six turnovers, a 24-0 lead blown, 35 unanswered points, all on Rivers. This is how it has been written.
…La Jolla Country Day Senior Alex Garcia challenged City Councilman Carl DeMaio on the city’s decision to transfer booking responsibilities for the public Convention Center to the private Convention and Visitors Bureau.
“How would you prevent a repeat of the spending abuses and poor management policies that were the reason the city took booking power away from the bureau in 2004?”

A mural of a whale and other sea creatures is set to be removed from the wall it was painted on more than 20 years ago.
The mural depicting San Diego sea life currently covers a large wall at City Chevrolet on Morena Boulevard. It was painted two decades ago by a group of local artists, including muralist Kevin Immel.
The muralists even collaborated with Scripps Institute of Oceanography to ensure the painting accurately represented sea life.
Now, the art piece is set to be removed because General Motors plans on remodeling all of their dealerships to look the same.
It was a tough night for City Councilman Carl DeMaio. After weeks of outreach and publicity about reaching out for the Latino vote in San Diego’s Mayoral contest, his expedition into Barrio Logan last night was a bust. Despite DeMaio’s web site’s boast that “The Latino Community is uniting behind Carl DeMaio’s vision for jobs and quality schools!” the ‘Latinos for DeMaio’ event had exactly three voters show up. There were, however, six people who did appear on site to protest his appearance.
The event was catered for fifty. (Crackers, chips and salsa) Candidate DeMaio muttered a few words about his campaign for ‘reform’ winning one voter at a time and left. The protesters moved in and helped themselves to the candidate’s ‘spread’. This venture into the world of voters south of Interstate 8 comes on the heels of much ballyhooed moves by the DeMaio campaign to appeal to voters in San Diego’s less white-bread neighborhoods.
