2. Local Students Take on 'Great Kindness Challenge'

3. Dad and Soccer star Landon Donovan Participates in First Practice with San Diego Sockers
Landon Donovan's comeback is on, as the American soccer star completed his first practice as a member of the San Diego Sockers. Donovan said he "feels like a kid again," as he works to make his indoors soccer debut during the Sockers MASL game.
This story can be summed up in three words: You Are Beautiful.
The phrase is now hanging on the side of the Apple Tree Supermarket in Ocean Beach thanks to Stephanie La Bue Robles.
“Even though we’re a small town, we have a big heart,” said Robles. “It’s for everyone. It doesn’t matter who you are, where you live, what you’re doing, you are beautiful.”
There’s a lot more to the story behind those words, and it begins a decade and a half ago.
5. Afternoon Showers Bring Evening Rainbows
Thursday evening may have been a nightmare of a commute home for most of us but the storm that drenched the region left behind a very beautiful sight.
