The Mayor’s Corner
Posted: August 09, 2019

My father, Michel Jean Bernard Dedina, passed away on Sunday, Aug. 4, in Imperial Beach at the age of 86, after our family said our last goodbyes. Thanks to the wonderfully caring and dedicated staff at the Sun & Sea Manor in Imperial Beach for taking care of my dad over the past few months. as well as all of his many friends. This essay about my father was published in my book, Surfing the Border, and I thought I would share it here.

Leftward Lurch A Losing Strategy
Posted: August 09, 2019

What the Democrat debaters lack in realism they are making up for in entertainment value. You have to be amused by the cranky, old socialist from Vermont who seems to be perpetually mad at everyone. You just have to feel sympathy for poor old Joe who keeps apologizing for almost everything he’s ever said or done, but still gets scolded by the other candidates, especially by California’s freshman senator, Kamala Harris, who gained national attention by disrupting the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings and scolding him, too.

More Memorable Moments With Mueller
Posted: August 02, 2019

According to a May Harvard/Harris poll, two-thirds of Americans don’t want Congress to start impeachment hearings against President Donald Trump and 80 percent would rather it focus on real priorities like infrastructure, health care and immigration. Pro-impeachment progressives must not be reading the polls or they just don’t care about the people’s priorities because they just can’t seem to get over their myopic obsession with removing this president from office, even if it costs them the election. That’s good news for the GOP because this obsession is an insult to the 47 percent of the voters who elected him and don’t want their votes invalidated. Why would you insult 62 million voters if you want to win an election?

Currently, our Mayor clearly wears at least two hats – the secondary hat is as the long-term (19+ years) co-founder and Executive Director of the NGO (Non-Government Organization) known as WildCoast/CostaSalvaje.

The Mayor’s Corner
Posted: July 26, 2019

The morning of Wednesday, July 24, was the first morning I have seen the sun at dawn on the coast in at least over a month and maybe longer. Sunrise is my favorite time of the day and generally I am out and about surfing, swimming, walking or at the gym. And there is nothing better than catching a gorgeous red sky as the sun rises over the mountains to the east. But with pervasive overcast and the worst June Gloom since 2012 according to the National Weather Service, early morning sunshine has been hard to come by. Ocean temperatures have also been much, much cooler than average, with the National Weather Service reporting that Southern California in early July experienced the coolest ocean temperatures since 2010. Meanwhile the ocean temperatures around coastal Alaska are running 10 degrees Fahrenheit above normal. The ocean temperatures in Imperial Beach have been hovering in the low to mid 60s all summer and have just started to climb near 70 degrees Fahrenheit in Mission Beach and north San Diego County. Over the past few summers we all became used to Cabo-like ocean conditions. We’ll see how the rest of the summer plays out.

Reflections On Passing The Torch
Posted: July 12, 2019

One of the lesser candidates for the Democrat presidential nomination advised Joe Biden that it was time to pass the torch of leadership to younger leaders, presumably a category that would include himself, implying that Mr. Biden was too old for a leadership role. Mr. Biden is the most qualified, by experience at least, among the gabble of Democrat candidates contending for the nomination to run for the most powerful office in the world by virtue of his eight years as Vice-president, a heartbeat away from the presidency, and his lengthy service in the Senate. Herewith are some thoughts on that topic.
