- ECPAC - El Cajon City Council threatens to close the East County Performing Arts Center (ECPAC) theater December 24th for 18 to 24 months for some kind of renovation, the substance of which is not quite clear. Apparently, there is some threat of lawsuit by CCT (Christian Community Theater) and Art Beat Management, headed by Paul Russell.
- Shut San Onofre - San Onofre Nuclear Power Plant, with the highest number of reports of safety violations in the nation, is down due to engineering design mistakes. Combined with earthquake and tsunami risks, this plant should not be restarted, but for the safety of all concerned, decommissioned.
- Occupy San Diego - Occupy Wall Street has been extremely successful in changing the dialog about income disparity and plight of the 99% as a result of incredible profiteering on Wall Street
