Barbara Bry Reveals
The State Of Her District

We had the opportunity to meet with District One San Diego City Council Member and President Pro Tem Barbara Bry one week before her scheduled January 25th State Of The District presentation where she candidly discussed her freshman year accomplishments:


What she was most proud of along with the surprising challenges, and what’s in store for her constituency in 2018.

For an intimate introduction to Barbara Bry we invite you to enter the archived VOLJ VIP (Very Interesting People) Gallery and learn of her history and her ambitions long before she won her seat on the SD City Council. Listen to the Podcast Interview





In this Voice Of La Jolla Audio News Brief we'll be hearing from Lori Thiel, incoming president of the San Diego Chapter of the League Of Women Voters discussing the history and future of the Chapter with an overview of the current political state of the union, followed by UCSD Health Directors Aaron Byzak and Robert Clossin, responsible for messaging the vision of UCSD Health to the larger community.


Learn about the alarming increase in jet noise over La Jolla from Dr. Matthew Price, and join us in celebrating the reopening of fire damaged Sammy's Woodfired Pizza as owner and village icon Sammy Ladecki recounts his year and a half of regulatory nightmares.





A VOLJ/Village News Exclusive:

For the past ten months La Jolla resident artist Nasser Pirasteh has been doing battle with the City of San Diego over the definition of an “art piece” set on his property, so described by Nasser, and it being a “structure” as stated by city inspectors.

After two hearings where the city held firm (despite the support of La Jollans), the threat of the onerous fines and time line for action were reestablished, ultimately resulting in Nasser’s recent decision to end the fight.

VOLJ radio and the La Jolla Village News learned through an exclusive telephone interview with Mr. Pirasteh that continuing to counter city hall would cost him over $250,000 in fines, causing him financial ruin. Listen now to the rest of the story.


• Meet Debbie Lee, Founder of America's Mighty Warriors and hear her compelling story of personal loss and triumph.

• La Jolla artist Peggy Hinaekian has published a romance novel that reads suspiciously autobiographical.

• Fresh Produce can be found at the corner of Ivanhoe and Prospect, and it's not your garden variety women's fashion boutique. Meet CEO and Founder Mary Ellen Vernon and learn of this unique store's beginnings.





Join us as VOLJ presents the abridged version of the Memorial Day 2016 celebration at the Mount Soledad National Veterans Memorial.
