The moment you “Jump the Shark” is when you pull a mistake so drastic that your project takes a noticeable turn for the worse.
As we make an inventory of the things we are thankful for, it would be very easy for those of us who live in Oceanside to overlook something we absolutely must not take for granted.
Oceanside became a city 125 years ago. It’s no surprise then that there are some classic old buildings in the downtown “Townsite” area.
Those who support the arrival of Oceanside’s fourth Walmart at the corner of Mission Avenue and Horne Street point out how wonderful it will be that all the locals who live in the downtown “Townsite” area will finally have access to fresh fruits and vegetables this Walmart grocery outlet will provide.
A South Oceanside bar with a colorful past has just closed down and a new owner is about to breathe new life into the place with a new staff, new name and a remodel.
A cross fit gym is dedicated to the idea that there is more to working out than just lifting weights and becoming strong.
While many locals still find it hard to believe our sweet seaside hometown is getting zapped with its fourth Walmart, we do have some good news to share on the retail front.
It looks like the historic restaurant with the breathtaking view of the harbor and the ocean will not be torn down after all.
“Meet the new boss. Same as the old boss.”
