Will Carless returns in the latest episode of VOSD Radio. He and Scott Lewis examine:

• San Diego Unified School District’s recent real estate-deals record, including the third land sale to fold in recent months;

• the problems with Mayor Bob Filner’s tax proposal for regulating medical marijuana dispensaries; and

Numbers of the Week: 1. $7.6 million. That’s what the city paid to a man paralyzed by a tree that fell after the city cut back on maintenance. 2. $900,000. That’s what the city saved by cutting back on tree maintenance.

They also take a look at one of four Fact Checks we did on claims by the police union.

Plus, find out why VOSD Radio named Filner Hero of the Week and City Attorney Jan Goldsmith Goat of the Week. Listen here.
