  • Re: Re:'Does Nikki Haley qualify as a natural born citizen?' [Village News, Meadows Letter, 3/9/23]

    Updated Mar 23, 2023

    In response to Dana Meadows comments regarding Nikki Haley's eligibility to run for President of the United States, it appears she has never read the Constitution, or she would have answers to her own comments. Public opinion is not always true. If Dana had read Article II Section 2 paragraph 5, she would see that the first seven Presidents were in deed eligible to be President – "No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible.." T...

  • How to use diet to combat age-related bodily changes

    Updated Mar 23, 2023

    The human body is a marvel. How the body transforms over the course of an individual's life is one of its more remarkable qualities, and those changes never cease, even as individuals near retirement age. The changes associated with aging include physical transformations but also more subtle shifts the naked eye cannot see. For example, metabolism slows as individuals grow older, and aging also can lead to a decrease in bone density and muscle mass. These changes affect how me...

  • Lenaway rebuilding Warriors' boys tennis team

    Updated Mar 23, 2023

    Joe Naiman Village News Reporter Fallbrook High School’s boys tennis team likely won’t have an impressive record this year. A high school tennis match consists of each of a school’s three singles players contesting sets against each of the other school’s singles players. It also consists of a school’s three doubles teams facing each of the other school’s doubles tandems. A team, thus, must have at least nine players to avoid forfeiting sets. Since the 2023 Warriors only have six players, the opponent in each match will...

    Updated Mar 23, 2023

    Joe Naiman Village News Reporter Fallbrook High School’s girls lacrosse team didn’t win the Warriors’ scheduled game March 3 at Valhalla, not due to a loss, but due to rain.

    Updated Mar 23, 2023

    Elizabeth Youngman-Westphal Special to The Village News Oct. 4, 2012: After walking back to our apartment last night in the drizzly rain from the market, we made a simple meal of grilled chicken breast, a butter leaf lettuce salad, fresh spinach tortellini with pesto, and a bottle of red table wine. Quick learners, in just two days, we know not to walk up the 59 stairs unless we carry a fresh baguette under each arm. Sleeping erratically last night, we seem to still be on California time; no doubt, it’s gonna take a few days...

  • Revisiting reparations

    Updated Mar 23, 2023

    It was just another godless night, reminiscent of the movie "Sin City," with the clamoring of car alarms going off everywhere, the unnerving sounds of police sirens echoing above the promenade, and the smell of cannabis lingering in the air. A hedonistic theater teeming with secular progressives who openly mock those who recite the Lord's Prayer! But on this unforgettable night, not even the residents fast asleep in their protected palaces in Pacific Heights would be safe from the beast lurking inside the devil's lair. As...

  • Re: 'Does Nikki Haley qualify as a natural born citizen?' [Village News, Letter, 3/9/23]

    Updated Mar 23, 2023

    In regard to the opinion piece written by Judy Willis, concerning the requirements to qualify as a candidate for president of the United States, she states: “One of the requirements to be president is to be a natural born citizen. A natural born citizen is not just someone who is born in the United States. This person must also have parents who were both citizens of the United States at the time of their birth.” The statement in the opinion piece above is incorrect. The 14th amendment, sec 1, defines the requirements to be...

  • 'Beyond Magenta': another GOP tempest in a teapot

    Updated Mar 23, 2023

    GOP leaders have now directed their constituents to be incensed over a book titled “Beyond Magenta,” currently in some public school libraries. The book presents first-person accounts of six young adults’ childhoods and coming of age as transgender or other gendered. The book has been reviewed and been generally described as age-appropriate for 14 year-olds and up. Yes, it addresses aspects of sexuality, but no students are required to read it. If you don’t want your children to read it, then tell them not to. Your singula...

  • Re: 'Heavy drinking and March Madness celebrations' [Village News, 3/9/23]

    Updated Mar 23, 2023

    Your article was a timely reminder that allowing or including minors in celebrations where minors have access to alcohol or marijuana can have deadly consequences. The California Health Kids survey report found 40% of 10th grade Fallbrook Union High students reported both alcohol and marijuana were easy to get (40% and 46% respectively). Although many teens believe marijuana is safer than alcohol, the truth is neither is safe for teens with still developing brains, which is why addiction is a pediatric onset disease....

  • Alleviating rising energy costs

    Updated Mar 23, 2023

    Supervisor Jim Desmond 5th District Electricity prices are out of control in California, most notably in San Diego County. A few weeks ago, I discussed the many reasons behind the dramatic increase in our bills, but the fact remains that California's utility rates are consistently 30% higher than the national average. All of this comes as San Diego Gas & Electric is set to increase their rates yet again. This isn't right, and something needs to be done. Last week, I wrote a letter to the California Public Utilities...
