Dear South Bay Parents/Guardians And Community Members
Posted: November 29, 2019

There is currently a lot of conversation taking place among California legislators about funding for public education. Although California is the 5th largest economy in the world, our state level of education funding per student is 45th in the Nation. As a comparison, California students are funded at approximately $10,000 per student, while New York provides $21,000 of funding per student.

Get Ready For Ocean Water Quality To Take A Dive!
Posted: November 22, 2019

Locals in Imperial Beach and Coronado may not be aware that the currently proposed plan that is called The TRV (Tijuana River Valley) Stakeholders Solution as proposed by the Surfrider Foundation, North American Development Bank (NAD), and supported by the Mayor of Imperial Beach and his non-profit corporation Wildcoast could result in the quadrupling of the amount of treated sewage being dumped off Imperial Beach from the current 25 million gallons a day (mgd) to more than 100 million gallons a day. Anywhere else in the United States, this sewage dump would be illegal and a direct violation of the Clean Water Act.

The Mayor’s Corner
Posted: November 15, 2019

On Saturday, Nov. 9, the statue honoring Chopper, the Navy SEAL dog, was officially unveiled at Veteran’s Park. This moving tribute to all military working dogs was made possible thanks to the City of Imperial Beach, the Navy Seal Museum, Navy SEAL veteran Trevor Maroshek and community resident Jerry Quinn. While Maroshek served in the Navy, he started the first dog unit in the Navy SEALS and then also started the Navy SEAL Dog Foundation that supports veterans with service dogs. The tribute was a nice precursor to Veteran’s Day on Monday, Nov. 11, and the wonderful Military Appreciation Day celebration at Dune’s Park organized by the local chapters of the Fleet Reserve, American Legion and the Veteran’s of Foreign Wars along with the Chamber of Commerce. Thanks to all the sponsors of the event and all of the organizers who have made this event an annual and wonderful tradition in Imperial Beach.

Most Americans feel genuine gratitude for veterans and military members who have served or are currently serving our country. But we can do more to actively support them aside from saying; “Thank you for your service.” From financial assistance to volunteering with veterans’ service organizations (VSOs), there are many ways across the spectrum of support through which we can show gratitude to our nation’s veterans, military members, and military families.

The Schiff Sham
Posted: November 08, 2019

Now obviously aware that her failure to require a full House vote before authorizing Chairman Adam Schiff’s Intelligence Committee to investigate possible grounds for impeachment and conduct secret interviews was a mistake, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi belatedly called for a vote. Her decision followed closely a ruling by a federal judge that Schiff’s committee was indeed engaged in an impeachment inquiry and was therefore entitled to access secret grand jury information from the Mueller investigation.

The Perils Of Impeachment
Posted: November 01, 2019

In America, the citizens get to choose their president by participating in free elections every four years. The Constitution gives this power to the people. It also seeks to protect them from a president who commits impeachable offenses, defined as high crimes and misdemeanors such as treason and bribery, by giving Congress the power to impeach him. The authors considered but rejected including mal-administration as a cause for impeachment, fearing that it could too easily be used by Congress to remove a president over political or ideological differences, thereby giving one equal branch of government an ultimate advantage over another.
