We prorate your rent by the day after the first 28-day billing cycle, so you don’t have to pay for a full month when you only have your mobile containers and offices for a few days.

While other companies may be able to do small container modifications, most don’t have an in-house fabrication staff or 90,000 sq ft fabrication facility like we do. As a result, they outsource the work on your custom container, so you don’t know who’s actually building it.

Rest assured knowing your modified shipping container will be built to the highest quality standards. Our certified weld and quality control inspectors check every step of the fabrication process to ensure everything is structurally sound and built to your specifications.

Meet San Diego’s ‘pink punk’ band: The Havnauts

The Havnauts isn’t your typical punk band. For starters, all the members dress in a surprising shade: pink.“At some point, I was like: ‘What if we all just wore one color … and what if it was pink?’ And then you just start going to Party City and buying the pink decorations that are on sale,” vocalist and rhythm guitarist Shelbi Bennett says, laughing.This bold color choice certainly packs a punch on stage, but for Bennett — along with fellow band members Jenny Merullo (drums), Zak Kma...

The Havnauts isn’t your typical punk band. For starters, all the members dress in a surprising shade: pink.

“At some point, I was like: ‘What if we all just wore one color … and what if it was pink?’ And then you just start going to Party City and buying the pink decorations that are on sale,” vocalist and rhythm guitarist Shelbi Bennett says, laughing.

This bold color choice certainly packs a punch on stage, but for Bennett — along with fellow band members Jenny Merullo (drums), Zak Kmak (bass, vocals) and Josh Smith (lead guitar) — the decision goes beyond aesthetics. The “pink punk” band’s informal dress code unifies the group, and the bright shade also carries into its musical approach.

“The pink color just kind of matches,” Merullo says. “I think it lightens up a lot of our sound as well ... so often music and art are about a juxtaposition. Our music has a definite edge to it, but it’s also really accessible.”

With lyrics that explore heavy themes like heartbreak and growing pains, paired with metal-inspired guitar riffs and powerful drums, The Havnauts’ sound definitely draws on the elements for which punk isknown.

But both of its albums — debut EP “Go for It!” (2018) and sophomore album “Real Good Now” (2020) — aren’t afraid to add other genres like pop and rock to the mix. The band puts an intensity behind tender songwriting, creating an upbeat and anthemic track list more likely to make a listener dance than scream.

To achieve its sound, the four-piece outfit embraces each member’s varied musical backgrounds, from Berklee College of Music to School of Rock San Diego. Bennett and Kmak take the lead on songwriting, but everyone is involved in the inventive creative process.

“I think that the friendliness between us all really translates in the music too,” Bennett says. “Life is hard sometimes, but you just write a bouncy song about it and try to shift the perspective a little.”

Making the best out of a bad situation proved to be paramount last year when the pandemic hit only two months after the release of “Real Good Now.” Unlike other local bands, The Havnauts opted out of livestream performances. Instead, the members focused on visualizing the album and produced a series of DIY music videos.

“We’re such a live band ... for us it’s (about) the room and the energy,” Kmak says, adding that making the videos allowed The Havnauts to “give people something to talk about and keep the creative juices flowing.”

The Havnauts plan to release more music videos this year, but the band is now shifting to live performances and kicking things off with a headlining show at Soda Bar tonight.A second show is scheduled for Aug. 14 at the Pour House in Oceanside.

Returning to the stage gives The Havnauts a chance to bring “Real Good Now” back to life, as well as add two new songs to the setlist: an original track called “Bummer Man” and a cover of The Stooges’ “Search and Destroy.”

Looking into 2021, Merullo says the band, who is nominated for its third San Diego Music Award this year, hopes to play larger venues like Belly Up in Solana Beach and Little Italy’s Music Box, and possibly plan a West Coast tour.

However, the band members measure their success by more than the size of the nightclub or how many albums it sells.

“We barely get enough money for a burrito — once we split it up four ways — from any of the venues in San Diego,” Bennett says. “We play shows because we love them and because we love each other ... it’s not about the money.”

Listen to the band’s two albums on Bandcamp, Spotify or Apple Music.

Faulconer will officially face voters in September as "businessman," and the city attorney is quiet on Civic Center Plaza demands.

July 26, 2021

You\'d be forgiven if you learned that former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer was a "businessman" last week when a judge ruled that he had to be listed on September\'s recall ballot as "businessman/educator," after he lost an attempt to describe himself as "retired San Diego mayor."

Faulconer hasn\'t had much to say this year about any role he holds with a business, busy instead with a gubernatorial campaign that he began exploring in early January and which he officially launched in February.

But, it turns out he has also been working part time as a strategic adviser for a company called Collaborate for California, a government consulting company started on Jan. 1 of this year by Aimee Faucett, Faulconer\'s former chief of staff. The "educator" portion of his ballot title owes to his role as a visiting professor at Pepperdine University, which the school announced in December.

Since Faulconer will now officially face voters in September as "businessman," we asked Faucett for a list of the company\'s clients and a description of Faulconer\'s role with the company.

For now, the company has just one client: IQHQ, the developer building a biotech campus at the property near the San Diego Bay that was ready to become Manchester Pacific Gateway, before developer/Faulconer support Doug Manchester sold most of his leasehold to a company that specializes in biotech real estate.

"Former Mayor Faulconer provides strategic advice when requested," Faucett wrote in an email. She did not respond to a request for an estimate of how much he has worked for the company this year.

City Attorney Mum on Civic Center Plaza Demands

Earlier this month, lenders behind the city\'s Civic Center Plaza lease gave the city an ultimatum after it failed to make its July rent payment: Pay up or surrender possession of a building that houses hundreds of city employees within 10 days.

The city\'s deadline quietly came and went on Saturday.

The city attorney\'s office, which has office space in Civic Center Plaza, did not respond to a Friday request about what it planned to do.

A representative for the lenders declined to comment on their next steps last week other than to say they intend to "vigorously defend against the city\'s baseless attempt to void" the leases while continuing to occupy Civic Center Plaza rent-free.

The city opted to stop paying rent earlier this month in the aftermath of revelations that a city real estate adviser who had been considered a volunteer was paid for his work on the Civic Center Plaza and 101 Ash St. leases, an outcome that attorneys for the city have deemed a significant conflict of interest violation that should result in the voiding of those two leases.

In a July 14 letter, an attorney representing the lenders wrote that they would "exercise all rights and remedies under the lease" and seek to evict the city from Civic Center Plaza if the city failed to fork over its $313,118 monthly rent by Saturday.

If the lender in the Civic Center Plaza deal moves forward with an eviction case against the city, the situation will likely play out in court.

In related news: The City Council land use committee voted Friday to forward building management agreements for the 101 Ash and Civic Center Plaza building leases to the full City Council for approval. Both leases require building management agreements.

Given the uncertainty surrounding both buildings, the proposed agreements with San Diego-based Meissner Jacquet Commercial Real Estate Services include clauses allowing no-fault cancelations by the city with 30 days\' notice.

SAN DIEGO — The San Diego Registrar of Voters still needs temporary election workers for the California Gubernatorial Recall Election on Tuesday, Sept. 14. Election workers can earn up to $20 an hour.

There is a particular need for election workers to manage the operations of mail ballot drop-off locations and site managers for in-person voting locations around the county.

The mail ballot drop-off locations will be open for nearly a month and in-person voting locations will be open for four days instead of one. The registrar’s office will hire election workers rather than use volunteer poll workers because training is more extensive for the expanded time period.

The registrar is seeking people who are team players, exhibit strong leadership skills and display flexibility, patience, and the highest level of integrity at all times. Election workers must represent the San Diego Registrar of Voters in a professional, nonpartisan manner.

English speakers who are bilingual in Spanish, Filipino, Vietnamese or Chinese are also needed. If you are fluent in one of these languages, be sure to indicate it on your application.

The registrar’s office is working with public health services to ensure the health and safety of election workers and voters. Recommended personal protective equipment and sanitation supplies will be provided to workers so they can conduct the election process safely.

Applications are available online. For more information, call (858) 565-5800 or email pollworker@sdcounty.ca.gov.

Some key dates and information to keep in mind for the election:

DATES

- Starting August 16, early in person voting begins at the Registrar’s office.

- On August 17, 130 mail drop off locations will open.

-Then, from September 11 through election day, about 200 in-person voting locations will be available.

- The deadline to register is Aug. 30.

ELECTION COST

This election is costing San Diego County between $20 and $21 million.

According to the State Finance Department, the total cost is $276 million.

BALLOT QUESTIONS

The ballot for this recall election will have two questions. The first will ask voters if they want to recall the current Governor Gavin Newsom. If so, the second question will be who your replacement choice would be.
