Capt. Joe Cacciola Celebrates 40-Year Anniversary with Sea Star Charters

Growing up on Long Island, Capt. Joe Cacciola’s love for the water started at an early age. Cacciola graduated from Villanova University, was commissioned in the Marine Corp as an Officer and in 1971 stationed at Camp Pendleton. His quarters were at Camp Del Mar located right next to the harbor, and he felt blessed to have such a beautiful view. While the Marine Corp brought him here, Cacciola decided to stay for Southern California’s great weather and Oceanside’s perks. At the time, Oceanside’s population size was much smaller meaning little to no traffic, easy beach access and overall affordable living. Cacciola landed himself a spot right on South Pacific Street where he stayed for 14 years.

Tips to Keep Seniors Safe from Scams

By District Attorney Summer Stephan - Every year in San Diego County, senior citizens are scammed out of millions of dollars by bad actors who prey on vulnerability and the trusting nature of our elders. No one is immune. The victims are retired military, former educators, healthcare professionals, and even retired members of law enforcement. They are our parents, grandparents, neighbors, and friends. Although the most common scam targeting elder San Diegans is the grandparent scam, which convinces elders their grandchildren are in peril in some foreign jail and need bail money, I’d like to provide an array of tips that will help our loved ones from becoming the next victim.
