    San Diego city officials weigh options for $18,000-a-day lease on empty building

    The former Sempra Energy headquarters that the city of San Diego acquired on a lease-to-own basis in January 2017 will remain vacant until December at least, meaning taxpayers will spend more than $12 million leasing the empty building before even one employee moves in. The move could be pushed back until the fall of 2019 if city officials choose the last of four options presented to a council committee this week, a scenario that calls for finishing all the renovations needed to relocate as many workers as possible in the office tower. “I'm surprised you aren't more outraged,” Councilman David Alvarez told his colleagues at a committee meeting this week. By Thursday, Alvarez sent a 5-page memo to city officials, including City Attorney Mara Elliott, raising dozens of questions about the transaction.

    Knife-Wielding Man Barges Onto School Bus In San Diego County

    A man allegedly barged onto a school bus full of children and pulled a knife on the driver Friday in the southeastern reaches of San Diego County, where the struggle ended with a fast-acting bystander disarming the intruder, police said. The bus was pulling away from a stop in the 900 block of Jeb Stuart Road in Campo when the driver noticed someone running toward it about 8:30 a.m., according to sheriff's officials. Believing the approaching man was a parent trying to stop the bus for a child who had missed it, the driver pulled to a halt and opened the front door of the coach, Sgt. William Uelen said. When the suspect began to board the vehicle, which was full of Campo Elementary School students, the driver told him he was not allowed to do so.

That was due to his decision to trace 'BD 911' in the dirt on the back of the pitching mound, which some believed stood for 'Bush did 9/11.' Bauer denied this, but then would not reveal what the letters and numbers did stand for on Tuesday. Hypocrite?: The outrage comes on the heels of Bauer himself making comments suggesting some pitchers, specifically those on the Houston Astros, use pine tar A fiery
