Supporting California students

Supporting California students

Assemblymember Marie Waldron AD-75 (R) Education is one of my top priorities in Sacramento. As the mother of a high school student, I am keenly interested in improving California’s schools and test scores. I joined my Assembly colleagues to support a legislative package designed to reform California’s declining education system. The package included: I co-authored AB […]

Re: “Friends of animals are appreciated” [Letter, Village News, 11/12/15]

Praise to Barbara Johnson for encouraging people to spay/neuter. There are always more animals born than homes for them that can be found. If there are feral cats in your neighborhood, I encourage you to contact the Feral Cat Coalition (619) 758-9194. Although they do not do family pets, they will spay and neuter, treat wounds and […]

Friends of animals are appreciated

I would like to thank the Village News for providing extra newspapers for a ‘Mom’ dog named Heidi and her seven puppies that I am fostering for Animal Friends of the Valleys in Wildomar. Would also like to thank Dr. Jones of Alvarado Veterinary Hospital for providing me with a low-cost office call and medication […]

Kudos to Nieman’s Collision Center

Chances are we all will at, one time or another, be involved in a vehicular accident, regardless of who was at fault. I was involved recently in a collision in Fallbrook that required that my vehicle be towed and I chose Nieman’s Collision, a local repair facility. From the minute I entered the office, I […]

Rugby decision is grossly unfair

Dear Asst. Superintendent Iniguez, I am shocked and saddened that you have come to a conclusion that is neither well-reasoned, nor factually-supported. It appears you have performed a subjective evaluation that has rendered a decision that is grossly unfair to a particular group, and reveals a double standard. Why are only the boy’s rugby team […]

SDG&E needs to be stopped

SDG&E is at it again. Not only do we have the highest electricity rates in the nation, but they now want us to pay for the cleanup at San Onofre and the 2007 Fires. Since the CPUC rubber stamps their monthly rate increases, we all need to pull together and tell them and the Governor, […]

Retired Teachers Week Nov. 1-7

If you can read this letter, maybe you should thank a teacher.   The week of November 1-7 is California Retired Teachers Week and we all owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to those teachers who not only taught us but shaped us in our youth. Even after leaving their classroom, teachers continue to have […]

Rugby program at risk

Fallbrook, you reside with champions! Since 2005, this little community has grown a premier youth rugby program from a small group of Potter Middle School students into a regional powerhouse. In addition to being champions on the field, Fallbrook Youth Rugby (FYR) has lead the effort to get high school rugby sanctioned as a California […]

Alert Locksmith to the rescue

Just minutes before my business was to open one morning, I broke a key in the door. Two of my staff and three guests were also on their way here. I was in panic mode when I called Alert Locksmith. Bruce Taylor was here in less than five minutes, (I’m not kidding), and opened my […]
