Que Paso Con Chicano Perk: Chicano Perk moved to National City a year or so ago and now is gone. National City homeboys just couldn’t bring themselves to paying $2 per cup of coffee. The Perk made a name for themselves in Sherman but just couldn’t recapture the same vide in OTNC.

Being chairman of the Assembly Insurance Committee all those years paid off for Juan Vargas who is now a vice-president in California for Safeco a Seattle-based insurance company. Guess all those constituents who complained that Vargas was a shill for the insurances companies can “so told you so”.

Westside Chula Vistans better be on their toes. New Mayor Cherly Cox said a lot the right things to make you feel good at her first city council meeting, but she also said so things that should worry the old timers. Read between the lines! You might want to take a look at who and how much money was donated to her campaign. For Crossroaders their old nemeses, Jim Pieri was a big contributor!

Hola Gente: did you miss the annual Dia de la Virgin Guadalupe Parade this year? Don’t worry you are not the only one by all the emails this tezzy has received over the last week. Los Guadalupanos jumped the gun and had the Parade last Sunday, okay a little early but why did they have move the parade to Mission Valley? What’s up with that. Always held in downtown San Diego, the parade traveled from City College to the convention center where la gente could come out and line the streets to view the parade. In Mission Valley there are no sidewalks along the streets. Just another example of la gente getting pushed out.

Guess the new mayor didn’t want to see all those Hispanics near city hall!!
