Grand Jury decides on Leucadia Flooding, Recommends Money Grab story: Grand Jury Critical Of Leucadia Storm Drainage

"The grand jury cited an engineering report that overhauling the drain system could cost as much as $42 million. The city's annual is of less than $60 million. Individual projects would range from $1 million to about $4.5 million, according to the report."

Is flooding a problem in Leucadia? Yes.

Will it take $42 million to fix? No.

Total scam. Be aware.

Scott Saw Art Show May 10th thru June 31st

Local Artist/Photographer Exhibits Recent Local Scenic Photos
WHO: Scott Saw, Lifelong Encinitas/Cardiff resident/artist/photographer.
WHAT: Scott Saw will have recent photographs on display and available for purchase.
WHERE: Utopia Style Lounge, 1038 South Coast Hwy 101, Encinitas, CA 92024
WHEN: Photographs will be on display May1-June 31, 2012

OPENING RECEPTION: Thursday May 10, 6-8 PM

Scott Saw will be displaying recent scenic photographs for the next two months at Utopia Style Lounge in Encinitas. The photos on display are all local to the North County San Diego area. Scott is attracted to the dramatic colors provided by evening light. Using HDR techniques he captures images that can’t be made with a single exposure. The resulting photographs are rich in color, mood and beauty. The Encinitas coast has always been home to Scott. He grew up surfing its waves and now enjoys it more often through the lens of his camera. His photographs, however, are not your typical sunsets at the beach. Scott seeks out cloudy, stormy skies and uniquely captures moments where the light and the darkness transcend the conventional beauty of the coast.

Please join Scott and his family for a cocktail reception at Utopia Style lounge, Thursday, May 10 from 6-8 PM. A variety of photographic prints will be available for purchase at the event and at the salon through June 31st. A percentage of all proceeds will benefit the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

All American Barbershop

All American Barbershop is hidden behind Wendy's by the Shell gas station, you know, right above Cotton Wood Creek park on Encinitas Blvd.

It's a great old school style barber shop run by younger guys with throwback attitudes.

A nice counter balance to the many fine but foo foo hair salons in this town for the dude who just needs to look sharp at an affordable price.
