Helping Senior Citizens

Assemblymember Marie Waldron AD-75 (R) This session I authored a bill to establish a San Diego pilot program funded through the Victim’s Crime Fund to provide assistance to elder and dependent victims of financial crimes. My bill was supported by the California Commission on Aging and the California Elder Justice Coalition. It can be scary […]

Go Legion! Yes on DD

I’ve been attending Bonsall High School ever since it first opened in 2014. We started out with a few buildings on the Sullivan Middle School campus, and only 65 freshmen. Our first project was to decide the school’s mascot, colors, logo, and motto. We worked on multiple ideas, and the community voted for favorites. When […]

Re: Vote No on Measure DD [Village News letter, 10/13/16]

The process to build Bonsall High School started 10 years ago when parents asked, “Why must the great education that students receive in our district stop at 8th grade?” Signatures were gathered, the petition was found sufficient, public hearings were held recommending approval and it was sent to ballot. The people voted to unify in […]

Bond measures to benefit contractors, not pupils

I am a resident and taxpayer in Fallbrook. Vote no on Bonsall and Fallbrook Measures DD & AA. They add new taxes to every parcel of property that will last for decades. They’re designed for contractor profits instead of pupils. Fallbrook and Bonsall refused to include language in these measures to guarantee that students and taxpayers are getting […]

Lowe is ideal candidate for FPUD board

Every client of the Fallbrook Public Utilities District should be concerned over the ever increasing monthly rates they pay for water. The present FPUD Board majority continues to pay employees salaries higher than competitors. The long term financial impacts continue to apply to retirement funds that will always increase our water rates even if the […]

Participants needed for Thanksgiving 5K to Feed the Hungry

The Fallbrook Food Pantry has begun preparations for one of its most important fundraisers of the year, the Thanksgiving Walk/Run to Feed the Hungry, scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 12. In 2006, the local food pantry started the tradition of asking community members to walk or run together, and find sponsors who donate money to support […]

Yes on DD for a Permanent Bonsall High School Campus

In a recent meeting I attended with other school administrators, the majority were underwhelmed with their own high school experience. Four years during peak performance and development of the brain, and even educators dismiss the overall value of 9th – 12th grades. As a principal, I view that sentiment as a personal challenge. At Bonsall High School (BHS), we are […]
