Crises amplified for Mayor Bob Filner last week, and Scott Lewis and Will Carless explored the flare-ups on VOSD Radio, which records Friday mornings. (Friday afternoon, VOSD published an interview with a departed mayoral staffer who said Filner was aware of the Sunroad deal and that he quit because of how the mayor treated employees.)

They also presented the Number of the Week: 20. That’s how many San Diego County courtrooms were scheduled to be closed under the fiscal year 2012-2013 budget plan, according a report from the San Diego County Bar Association.

Plus, find out why VOSD Radio named ecologist Theresa Sinicrope Talley as Hero of the Week and prosecutors in the city attorney’s office as Goats of the Week. Listen here.
