Photo Gallery: The 2008 Hot 20 Under 40 Party

Hooman at Alice 97.3 Wants YOU to Vote

The drama of the presidential race has reached a sizzling peak - heated up by the VP debates last night, which were no where near the Palin-train-wreck people were predicting (or maybe wanting) and of course, the economic crisis.    The race has been the most talked about in decades - we've been following the candidate's every move on CNN, E! and the tabloids.  So turn all that time spent into action - step up on November 4th and VOTE.

Surf/Shark Report

As many of those who don wet suits know, it's shark season. They start to lurk in the waters with arrival of NFL preseason, and don't leave till the Super Bowl.

Since August 24th, when Stintson Beach was closed after a sighting, there have been 4 sightings at Ocean Beach, most recently September 14th, when a man surfing 2-3 foot waves around Sloat Ave watched a shark rip into a seal. Upon sharing this info with other surfers, most chose to stay in the water. They must have figured he was full.
