Comic-Con to fans: no offsite convention expansion

Comic-Con organizers are taking advantage of a huge, captive audience this week to take aim at plans that would expand the San Diego convention center in a separate facility off the waterfront.

While the Chargers aren’t mentioned by name, a message from Comic-Con board president John Rogers in the convention’s souvenir book reiterates its opposition to anything that would thwart a contiguous expansion of its longtime home. The future of the Con in San Diego could depend on it, Rogers implies in his statement.

“We have signed contracts to remain in San Diego through 2018,” Rogers writes in his president’s message. “We hope to stay much longer. But any decision on our future will take into account negotiations on a variety of fronts that will have a direct effect on our exhibitors, panel participants, and most important, you, the fans and attendees.”

With more than 135,000 attendees, the always sold-out Comic-Con International long ago outgrew the confines of the city’s waterfront convention center. It has made do by expanding programming into nearby hotels, the Horton Grand Theatre and the San Diego Central Library.

Only Comic-Con fills more San Diego hotel rooms than...

It should surprise no one to learn that San Diego’s annual Comic-Con fills the most hotel rooms every year. But do you know what events fill the second most rooms? Here’s a hint: It has to do with sports.

No, it’s not Chargers football or Padres baseball. It is youth soccer tournaments and other sporting events run by Surf Cup Sports. They bring tens of thousands of young athletes, their families, referees, college recruiters and more to this region every year.

All of that has caught the eyes of Major League Soccer, which is eyeing San Diego for a possible expansion team. Surf Cup Sports is an important part of that local soccer ecosystem. It’s also a homegrown success story.

San Diego Chargers getting stadium game-changer?

To try to “keep the drama down to a minimum,” San Diego City Attorney Jan Goldsmith is asking the state Supreme Court to expedite a ruling in a closely-watched case whose outcome could change the playing field for the San Diego Chargers as the team seeks to build a downtown football stadium.

The court case in question could be a game-changer for any California citizens’ initiative that creates new taxes for specific purposes because it might mean a simple majority vote instead of a two-thirds supermajority vote for approval. That lower threshold would sharply increase the chances the San Diego Chargers’ proposal to increase the hotel tax to 16.5 percent to pay for a joint convention center and stadium could succeed.

General Atomics' $40-million gamble on small nukes

The scientists and engineers at General Atomics think the future of nuclear energy is coming on the back of a flatbed truck.

The leadership at the San Diego company, which has been developing nuclear technologies for more than 60 years, has already spent $40 million in the expectation that its ambitious plans for the next generation of reactors will actually work.

“We have technology that we think is going to qualitatively change the game," said Christina Back, vice president of nuclear technologies and materials at General Atomics.

East Village South: Non-stadium plan revealed

As the Chargers’ $1.8 billion stadium-convention center heads toward the November ballot, an alternate vision will be presented Saturday for downtown’s East Village.

The so-called “East Village South Focus Plan” envisions apartment towers, high-tech start-ups, innovation-economy office compounds, new parks and plazas and maybe a convention annex or arena.
