Gaylord pulls out of Chula

Vista bayfront project

By Union-Tribune staff writer Tanya Sierra

CHULA VISTA ­— Gaylord Entertainment, the developer that Chula Vista hoped would finally turn around the city’s bayfront with a $1 billion hotel and convention center, has pulled out of the project citing funding hurdles.

In a letter to Chula Vista Mayor Cheryl Cox and Port District president Bruce Hollingsworth, Gaylord vice president Bennett Westbrook said he is disappointed with the outcome.

Even though the company made strides in smoothing community conflicts and negotiating the regulations governing bayfront development, it was not enough, Westbrook said in the letter.

Almost too true to be funny

It’s dark in here!

A woman has an affair during the day while her husband is at work. Her nine-year-old son comes home unexpectedly, sees the illegal lovers and hides in the bedroom cupboard to watch. Then the woman’s husband unexpectedly comes home.

She hides her lover in the cupboard, not realizing that her little boy is in there already.
The little Boy says: “Dark in here.”
The Man says: “Yes, it is.”
Boy: “I have a soccer ball, do you want to buy it?”
Man: “No, thanks.”
Boy: “My dad’s outside, I’ll call him if you don’t buy it!”
Man: “OK, how much?”
Boy: “£250.”

A few weeks later it happened again and the boy and the lover were in the cupboard together again.
Boy: “Dark in here”.
Man: “Yes, it is.”
Boy: “I have soccer boots.”

The Man, remembering the last time, asks the boy: “How much?”
The Boy says:”£750.”
The Man says: “Fine, I will buy them.”

Few days later, the Father says to the boy: “Grab your ball and boots, let’s go outside and have a game.”
The Boy says: “I can’t, I sold them for $1000.”
The Father says: “That’s terrible to overcharge your friends like that… £1000 is way more than those two things cost. I’m going to take you to church and make you confess your sins.”
They go to church and the father makes the little boy sit in the confession booth and he closes the door.

The Boy says: “Dark in here.”
The Priest says: “Don’t start that sh!t again! THIS IS MY CHURCH NOT YOUR FATHER’S HOUSE.”
