Homeless women see hope moving into city-sanctioned campsite – The San Diego Union-Tribune

San Diego opened its first city-sanctioned homeless camp on Monday in a public works yard near Balboa Park.

San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer announced the opening of the site last week in response to a hepatitis A outbreak that has disproportionately affecting the homeless, leaving 17 dead and hundreds hospitalized.

The Mason-Dixon Line turns 250 | Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Events mark the 1767 completion by English surveyors Mason and Dixon of the border of Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware and then-Virginia.

Mason and Dixon placed their last marker atop Brown’s Hill in what’s now Mason-Dixon Historical Park, which sits on both sides of of the line — Pennsylvania’s border with what’s now West Virginia.

That park is where the Mason-Dixon 250 anniversary will be celebrated Oct. 13-15, with re-enactors and guides in period costumes; speakers and guests including, from England, Jeremiah Dixon’s great-grandnephew John Dixon and other descendants; astronomy and surveying demonstrations (the two used to go hand-in-hand); politicians and proclamations; a quilt show and other arts and crafts; plus music, food and souvenirs.
