Municipal officials, highway builders and developers Wednesday unveiled a newly constructed nature reserve near Hollins Lake that is designed to replace an area that will be destroyed when California 52 is extended from Tierrasanta eastward to California 67. The $7-million Caltrans highway mitigation project on the banks of the San Diego River is the most comprehensive ever attempted in California, according to Caltrans officials.

An unidentified man was killed and a woman seriously injured early Friday when their car plunged from a bridge on Sunset Cliffs Boulevard and sank in a flood-control channel. The woman, also unidentified, was in critical condition Friday at UCSD Medical Center, a hospital spokeswoman said. The pair was traveling south on a bridge over the San Diego River flood channel at high speed when the accident occurred about 12:05 a.m., Deputy Coroner Ken Bell said. Minutes later, an off-duty lifeguard who noticed that part of the guardrail had been torn away, spotted the car under about 10 feet of water, authorities said.

A better exclamation point for federal Judge Rudi Brewster's scathing criticisms of San Diego's sewage system would have been tough to find. Just two days after Brewster fined the city $3 million for a long history of spills and Clean Water Act violations, a broken sewer main went unchecked for 48 hours. More than 5 million gallons of raw sewage spilled into the San Diego River and eventually into the ocean before the leak was stopped.

Can San Diego rise above the divisiveness over the convention center name? Many of us question the wisdom of some adults who listen with their ears instead of their hearts. If we are to heed the words of our new President, who espouses "a kinder, gentler nation," then it is appropriate for San Diego to take a generous giant step and honor Martin Luther King. Martin Luther King was a "kind" man. He was a "gentle" man. He was not a perfect man. People scream that he did nothing for San Diego.
