summer school for two months to study math and history, and I also hung out at the beach and spent time with family. Christian Muñoz, 17

La Jolla Cove beach is particularly crowded in the summer with both tourists and locals making the scene — even on a weekday, as pictured Wednesday, Aug. 13. Photos by Ashley Mackin I moved here! My family and I came up from Texas in June, but we just moved into our house a few weeks ago. I’ve been going to the beach because we didn’t have good beaches before. Becky Quilkie, 14

I’m still with an internship at UCSD, where I’m studying treatments for cholera and anthrax and other disorders. It’s a four-month internship that started at the end of June. Nikola Nikolic, 17

I helped out a lot at my church, La Jolla Presbyterian. I was a summer camp leader at Forest Home and I was a leader at a Vacation Bible School camp that we hosted. u Maia Hayden, 16

Shores merchants upset over utility construction By Ashley Mackin After receiving notice Aug. 19 from the city about the schedule for the resumption of the Avenida De La Playa Infrastructure Replacement project and Group Job 809 in La Jolla Shores, residents and business owners held a meeting Aug. 21 in the Shoreline Kitchen restaurant. They met to discuss their fears surrounding the amount of time needed to complete the infrastructure improvement and the city’s insufficient communications. The memo announced that construction would

resume on Avenida De La Playa on Sept. 2, after Labor Day (in accordance with the summer construction moratorium). Starting at the western intersection of Camino Del Sol, work would continue eastward block-by-block, installing box culverts on one block and concurrently replacing sewer and water lines on the street, with work on the last block scheduled to start in late November. Special attention would be given to the annual Fall Fest block party in October. The new pipes inspection and final street paving is scheduled for

February and March, 2015. The project first got underway Dec. 9, 2013 and was put on hold May 26 for the summer moratorium. Surf Diva co-owner Izzy Tihanyi said construction and subsequent street closures would hurt businesses. “A lot of merchants are worried because we have full-time employees we have to pay, who are supporting their families,” she told La Jolla Light.
