Here are the top stories today in Oceanside-Camp Pendleton:

  1. Manson Construction is wrapping up another busy construction season in the City of Oceanside. As of May 11th approximately 205,000 cubic yards of sand have been dredged from the Harbor Inlet and deposited on City beaches, officials reported yesterday. “The high surf warnings that were expected to occur this past weekend, did not materialize. Manson Construction did not need to remove the dredge pipe under the City Pier. This allowed them to continue depositing dredged sand south of the Pier,” the city said in the update. Manson expects to continue dredging for approximately 2-3 more days in order to meet the contract requirement of 245,000 cubic yards. (Dreaming Today)
  2. A woman was hit and killed by a motorhome early Saturday while crossing the street at an intersection near the Oceanside Municipal Airport, police said. The 56-year-old woman was crossing at San Luis Rey Mission Expressway and Benet Road at 4:31 am when she was hit by the westbound motorhome. Police started CPR when they arrived, but the woman died at the scene. Oceanside police said a preliminary investigation determined the woman was violating the right of way at the time of the accident. No alcohol was suspected. In the motorhome were a husband and wife headed to camp at the beach. (The San Diego Union-Tribune)
  3. To keep your weekend light, Patch presents some Southern California stories from the past week — many that will surely make you smile. Giraffe Born With Disorder Treated With Leg Braces At Safari Park. Senior Couple Ties Knot At San Juan Capistrano Living Community. BeachLife Festival 2022: The Smashing Pumpkins, Weezer & More.

  4. If you ask Julie Dunkle, of Encinitas, what she did to celebrate winning a world championship May 7, she’s quick to respond, “Nothing” — at least not immediately. That’s because the 55-year-old amateur athlete from Encinitas had just won the annual Ironman world competition in her age group. Pretty heady stuff — and thoroughly exhausting. Dunkle spent 11 hours, 46 minutes and 26 seconds swimming 2.4 miles, then cycling 112 miles and running 26.2 miles, beating the closest competitor in her age category by more than 46 minutes. (Encinitas Advocate)
  5. A young mother living on Camp Pendleton is getting national attention because of her struggles caused by the nationwide shortage of baby formula. Darice Browning posted on Facebook that the situation is bringing her to tears. That’s when The New York Times picked up the story and from there, it just exploded.(CBS News 8)
