Great story!! Nice to read an article like this for a change. Get so tired of everyone's negativityRead More all the time.

To Serge and all others --- I never said a damn thing about a Marina --- and that idiotic idea wasRead More abandoned long before the eco-terrorists took the sloughs No, what I was referring to was the fun all of us had in the Sloughs --- from the motorcycle races there (late 1950's --- put on by the Don Diegan Motorcycle Club - President George Hall) to the plethora of kids who learned to drive there, to the great fishing at the Mouth, the clamming, all the *dates* locals had there, and who could forget Eddie's 30th Birthday Party Yep, the sloughs were a very important part of life in IB ...

Hi Salinde: The costs of building a marina entrance in an area where 20 foot waves break duringRead More winter storms and the costs of annual dredging of that entrance would have been in the tens of millions of dollars. And I do understand that engineering constraints are often technical and financial--which meant that IB was a no go due to the high cost. No one was willing to pay the construction and permanent costs of a such a ludicrous project. And more than probably the IB marina idea was quite a bit lower on the "let's do it" scale for the U.S. than putting a man on the moon or building the Panama Canal.

Serge --- was going to comment on this response you wrote:Read More http://link.patch.com/view/4f36e4ef5a43876f5c8d1300504e4026dd6a49886b000049/1d8f2ebe but I can't seem to find it here ... Anyway, I wanted to ask about how it is you are allowed to surf in the sloughs and how many Dolphins there are are in the sloughs --- not off-shore in the open Pacific, but in the sloughs themselves ...

Good to clean it all up before the rains come to send it to the ocean.
Ben McCue September 5, 2012 at 01:21 pm
Its great to see how this event brings so many people together for a common cause: to celebrate theRead More river and highlight the need to continue its cleanup and restoration. Every time I'm down in the river valley I'm amazed by the wildlife; last week I saw a coyote walking by the community garden on Hollister St.
Winand HESS September 5, 2012 at 04:34 pm
I'll be there, of course.
John Galt August 23, 2012 at 04:11 pm
"Off-leash dogs can wreak havoc, said Lisa Cox with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service." WhyRead More are dogs running this area off leash? BAD OWNERS Does Imperial Beach need a law enforcement person to write tickets until the DOG OWNERS are trained? If so, then increase the fine to pay for law enforcement. BAD DOG OWNERS disrespect our community, our sidewalks, greass areas and parks. HAVE THEY NO SHAME? None. And please don't give me the agrument about needing a dog park. Get your own yard for Fido to poop in.

The Recreation Center at Saturn & Coronado Blvd. is trying to set up an anti-bully show inRead More August with a move for young children & their parents.
LT June 26, 2012 at 01:47 am
quit being such a bully, you big bully!
LT June 26, 2012 at 01:55 am
hmmm, so i guess every boss i've ever had was a bully since they didn't think i should get paidRead More unless i actually showed up and did work that they deemed necessary. my parents were huge bullies, they used to make me eat lima beans when my own "personal view" was that ice cream was better for me. so if these people have no "right" to do this than clearly i have a lawsuit on my hands stemming from an infringement of my personal rights, correct? now if i could only find a lawyer to represent me... wait by the above definitions, i guess lawyers are some of the biggest bullies of them all. good grief!!

Three weeks after our RELAY for LIFE and I still can't find the words to express what RELAY meant toRead More me this year.. I've met some new lifetime friends. I've learned that a new found lifetime friend has brain cancer.. She's in for the fight of her life and God willing she'll be okay. I learned that we -- the Imperial Beach Relay for Life surpassed the funds raised in any past year... To date - we raised more than $21,000.00... and we're still accepting donations and this past Sunday compelted our final fundraiser for 2012.. so this figure isn't quite final... ONE THING I CAN SAY FOR SURE.. 2 THINGS ACTUALLY.. Donna - We love you and 2013.. LOOK OUT..Relay for Life is going to rock this town. City of IB - council members and residents alike, we need your help to build our Relay to be something our City can be oh so Proud of!! This year - when you see a PURPLE RIBBON tied to something - THINK.. RELAY for LIFE..
