    Newsroom|Updated Jan 20, 2018

    RAINBOW – At least one sheriff's deputy opened fire Friday on an auto-theft suspect – missing the parolee – during a pursuit through the far northern reaches of San Diego County and southern Temecula, authorities reported.

    Fitness students chip in to help local nonprofits

    Updated Jan 19, 2018

    FALLBROOK – Wade into Fitness continued a nine-year tradition of giving back to the community this past holiday season.

"Candy cane" drawings are then held. The class member that pulls a specially marked candy cane in the drawing is allowed to select the charity to r...

  • How does your real estate firm handle the 'next big thing?'

    Nancy Schrimpf, Coldwell Banker Village Properties|Updated Jan 19, 2018

    A large percentage of realtors are super busy chasing the “next big thing.” An equally large percentage of realtors are just as busy turning their noses up at the “next big thing.” In my opinion, they are both doing it wrong. The second subset is easier to disparage because their stubborn refusal to change with the times and incorporate new techniques is there for all to see. They are the agents who consider a 48-hour response time acceptable. They don’t want to pay for profe...

  • 'Hamilton' – a quirky play with an angry point of view

    Elizabeth Youngman-Westphal, Village News Correspondent|Updated Jan 19, 2018

    In the past when I didn't enjoy a performance I talked about the good things I saw. In the case of the highly lauded "Hamilton", and might I add intensely expensive by the way, currently playing at the Civic Theater in downtown San Diego through Jan. 28, there is more to say. I didn't like it. There. I said it. I have wrestled with this (along with an intense bout of influenza) for close to a week now. The real question is would you pay $999 for a ticket to sit in the...

"I have a feeling we can compete in league and have a chance – if we can p...

    Looking for owner of lost dog

    Updated Jan 18, 2018

    On Jan. 1, I was out in front of my house (in Bonsall) with my two dogs and all of a sudden I saw this skinny white dog running up the road. He was obviously lost, no collar, and very, very skinny. I called out to him and he stopped for an instant but my dogs were barking and he decided to keep going. I just couldn't get to him and it broke my heart because I could tell he needed help. I posted this sighting on Nextdoor Saratoga and worried about him all night. The next...

  • Re: Trump's tax reform and the end of California's Gilded Age [Village News letter, 1/11/18]

    Updated Jan 18, 2018

    Trump’s so-called tax reform bill is nothing more than a multi-billion dollar bonanza for the wealthy elite (aka the 1 percent). It was passed by Republican congress members without a single Democratic vote. This means the Republicans were responding to their constituency, which is now the wealthy elite, not the rank and file GOP party members. And as has been policy, the bonanza will flow into the wealthy elites’ coffers, not to be seen again. Trump has assured us that this will really stimulate the economy. The Dow Jones In...

  • No drugged driving allowed

    Assemblymember Marie Waldron, AD-75 R|Updated Jan 18, 2018

    California’s new law legalizing the use of recreational marijuana went into effect January 1. Hopefully, the negative impacts on highway safety experienced in some other states with similar laws will not be repeated here. Using marijuana while driving remains strictly prohibited in California. The law prohibits smoking or ingesting marijuana or marijuana products while driving or riding as a passenger in a vehicle. Marijuana being carried in an automobile must be in a s...
