  3. Is it art or just horror? For residents who live along Via Malaguenain in Oceanside, a home has been an incredible eyesore. But according to the house’s tenant, Angelo Pamintuan, a self-proclaimed artist behind the creation, “I believe it’s art,” he said. “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder…I don’t think you can please everyone.” (CBS News 8)
  4. Local Oceanside chef and restaurant co-founder Davin Waite has been honored by the California Travel Association with its 2022 Sustainability Advocate Award.
