Yup, that’s right. The OB Rag’s own columnist, the Widder Curry, has made the news. Judi Curry – who lives in southern OB – was interviewed by Channel 10 News after she called them to recount her story of being victimized by a “Catfish” scheme. She went to the local TV station in order to warn other women about the risks of “online dating”.
Here’s part of the story by Jennifer Jensen, with links to the full article.
Local woman duped by love in ‘catfish’ scam – She warns women to be leery on free dating sites
At 74 years old, she thought she had found love again, but instead a local woman may have been part of an elaborate scam. Judi Curry contacted 10News after being “catfished” or duped into believing she was chatting online with someone pretending to be someone else. She says her story should send a message for women who are looking for love on free online dating sites.
No, the Chargers are NOT going to the playoffs, and no, the Aztecs should NOT replace Rocky Long.

Alright, so let’s have some fun. A little diversion from the world of San Diego politics for a moment.
Bolts Playoff Bound? Not a Chance!
First, let’s dispel any notion that the San Diego Chargers have any hope whatsoever at making the playoffs. Via Twitter yesterday, the Chargers issued a poll, asking followers whether, with two games remaining, will the team make the playoffs? They then joyfully tweeted out the results of the poll (a tweet that has oddly since been deleted….but thankfully someone else was smart enough to retweet the Chargers’ tweet) showing that 69% of respondents enthusiastically replied “Yes, the Chargers will make the playoffs!”
Update: Rodriguez’s friends are planning a memorial service and a paddle-out for him on Feb. 9 in Ocean Beach, according to a Facebook page called “Garret Rodriguez n Friends.”
Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office press release:
The Humboldt County Coroner has identified the human remains located in a gravesite off of Jewitt Ranch Road, Harris area of Humboldt County as that of missing person Garret Rodriguez, 29 years old from San Diego, California.
Years ago, San Diego Magazine was a stellar journalistic and investigative resource for San Diegans. Then for the last few decades, it succumbed to being a repository of house and garden type and variety of writings and photos and direction.
Yet the current issue has perhaps broken through that restraint and has issued a call for changes in San Diego for 2014 with its “10 Big Ideas for San Diego” by Erin Chambers Smith and Dave Good. Smith and Good say “Let’s start 2014 with some vision, shall we?”
We’re excited by Number 10 of their “big ideas” entitled “Let’s canoe down the San Diego River from the Cuyamacas to Mission Bay.” This is a great idea and would be wonderful news for OBceans and other beach denizens. It deserves some play here (although some of the other big ideas fall flat we think).
