San Diego News Update Oct 11: Poway Raising Canes, San Marcos Bike Park, Joe Biden Junk Fees

October 11, 2023
John Riley discusses Poway Raising Canes, San Marcos Bike Park, Costco, Teacher Pay, Steve Garvey, Joe Biden Junk Fees

In this week’s John Riley Project, we discuss the proposed Raising Canes on Poway Rd, the plans for the San Marcos Bike Park, a teacher quitting her job and making 50% more at Costco, Steve Garvey running for Senate, and Biden’s War on Junk Fees.

It’s Wednesday, October 11, 2023. Here’s what John Riley thinks:

Poway Raising Cane over Raising Canes Chicken Restaurant

The Poway City Council gave their thumbs up to a chicken restaurant replacing a vacant lot. Some Poway locals are upset. They say it makes Poway less walkable and encourages more carbon emissions. Will these people ever be happy? Who should decide what gets built on private property?

San Marcos Bike Park

Great move by San Marcos to transform an empty lot in a city park into a bike park with berms and jumps for riders of all skill levels.

Teacher Quits Job to Work at Costco, Make 50% More

A teacher was unfulfilled in her job and still feeling stress from teaching through the pandemic. She decided she had enough and went to work at Costco. Now she makes 50% more than she did as a teacher. Why don’t teachers make more money? Should you seek fulfillment from your job?

Steve Garvey Makes it Official. He’s Running for Senate in CA.

The Garv is officially getting into politics. Does a Republican have a chance in California? I doubt it. But it’s interesting to me when sports and politics intersect.

President Biden and FTC to Crack Down on Junk Fees

Who likes junk fees? You know, those extra “convenience fees” that are added to your price for concert tickets, sporting events, hotel rooms and rental cars. Biden and the FTC want to make junk fees illegal. But isn’t the government the worst offender?
