SDEA members demonstrate at schools
Members of the San Diego Education Association (SDEA), dressed in red T-shirts and holding signs, demonstrated at a handful of Scripps Ranch public schools last week as they attempted to drum up support and awareness of their ongoing contract negotiations with the San Diego School District’s Board of Education. The DEA demonstrators were seen during morning drop-off at Miramar Ranch Elementary School and during afternoon dismissal at Scripps Ranch High School.

The shooting that wasn’t
Scripps Ranch residents are known to be ever-vigilant. Residents near the area of Avenida Magnifica and Scripps Trail reported hearing gunshots one evening in early November. The reports apparently caused the San Diego Police Department to alert its helicopter to search the area, and a few squad cars rushed to the vicinity as well. Fortunately, the search turned up empty and quiet was restored after about 45 minutes.

Social media was buzzing about the police helicopter that night. Here is a condensed transcript of correspondence, concluding with some humorous comments, on Scripps Ranch Information Exchange:

“Does anyone know why the helicopter is circling?”

“My brain is already interpolating …”

“No announcements we are at Lake View and watched them come in.”

“It’s literally flying over my head right now.”

“I’m listening to the police scanner right now.”

“My kids are mad that I won’t let them play outside now.”

“A teachable moment to my son about shutting and locking doors when a police helicopter is circling around the house!”

“3 cop cars just drove down AM past Jerabek.”

“We didn’t lock up, guard dog is on duty.”

“Never heard anything announced on the police scanner.”

“It was the backfire from a car. Someone thought it was a gunshot, so called police. Don’t ask me how I know … although it might have something to do with our plumber’s car.”

“Thought maybe someone was going 27 in the 25 zone on Pomerado and SWAT was after ’em.”

Reader article causes stir
A cover story in last week’s the San Diego Reader print edition, and posted Nov. 8 on the Reader website (, caused plenty of discussion and uproar on social media, so much so that Scripps Ranch Information Exchange turned off commenting on the thread about the subject by the end of the weekend. In addition, the Reader posted an abundance of critical comments it received from residents.

The article, written by Moss Gropen, skimmed across several facets of the community in a satirical manner, ridiculing its suburban characteristics. Unsurprisingly, it was penned in the same provocative fashion that has been a hallmark of alternative city publications for decades. Based on the sizeable response, it’s a formula nearly as effective today as when such publications were at their pinnacle.
