This is a clarification on our earlier headline and article that spoke of “a protest rally” in front of the new location of the local VFW Post on Friday, January 28th. The event is more likely to be local residents and business owners upset attending a public meeting in protest of the VFW taking over the old location of Ranchos Restaurant. And that is at the intersection of Point Loma Avenue and Ebers Street.
An OB Rag citizen blogger heard about the event from neighbors. There is supposed to be a flier urgently local residents to attend some event and oppose the VFW move into the former restaurant/ market – but neither our local blogger or we have yet to see one. Locals are alleged to be “up in arms” about the new VFW site.
Another OB Rag journalist has confirmed that there will be a public meeting at the new VFW location in order for locals to voice their concerns. This is the event at 5 pm, Friday, Jan. 28th.
There will be updates on the public meeting and the circumstances surrounding the VFW’s motivation for calling the meeting. It is reported that there will be representatives of San Diego area politicians attending, as well as a representative of the SDPD – who reportedlywill respond to allegations that there had been problems involving alcohol or the conduct of veterans at the former VFW Post location.
