If you hike or bike near East Elliot (the part of Marine Corps Air Station Miramar north of Highway 52) you need to be careful to stay off the Mase. Marines are starting to take trespassers into custody and confiscating their equipment. There is a rifle range and other hazards in that part of the base. The San Diego Reader has more information.

Important Message about Using Social Media for Cyber-bullying, Threats
Over the past week, school districts throughout San Diego County, including San Diego Unified, have been addressing a troublesome social media phone app that many students are downloading and using called Burnbook. This app allows “anonymous” posts associated with high schools and universities throughout the county. Unfortunately, the purpose of this app is to post negative information, to post critiques of fellow students and mean things about people.
While students may think their posts are completely anonymous, with Wi-Fi use and cell towers, posts can be traced back to the phone and/or computer that posted the comments. It is important for students to know that all posts on any platform of social media never disappear and are never fully anonymous. This includes personal information, photos and any form of threat.
