    Supervisor Jim Desmond, 5th District|Updated Apr 21, 2021

    A lot has been happening recently in San Diego County, and progress continues to be made. On April 15, everyone 16 years and older became eligible for the coronavirus vaccine. While the Johnson & Johnson vaccine has been put on pause, the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are still available in San Diego County. I know the vaccine appointment websites can be confusing, so if you have any problems, 211 can help schedule an appointment, or you can contact my office at 619-531-5555....

  • Congressman Issa: Biden border lie "Biggest of his Administration"

    Updated Apr 21, 2021

    Washington – April 14, Congressman Darrell Issa (CA-50) outlined numerous, clear and repeated false statements by Biden Administration officials detailing agreements purportedly struck with Mexico, Guatemala, and Honduras: Issa said: “For weeks, the Biden Administration has offered misleading and incomplete statements to defend the border crisis that it created at warp-speed and that runs along half the country. This week, it went even further by claiming it had reached bilateral agreements that did not exist and ach...

  • Kicking It on the farm

    Elizabeth Youngman-Westphal, Special to The Village News|Updated Apr 21, 2021

    With Easter just over, I am reminded of spring on the Kansas farm. Each season brought a new job. For instance, springtime meant my folks would buy 500 baby chicks from the feed store. And because there was still snow on the ground, they had to live under a heat lamp in the corner of our kitchen. Weeks later, when the air warmed, we would add inches of fresh straw to the hen house floor. Watering cans were scrubbed and feeding trays were filled in preparation for relocating...

  • _'Where was the truth

    Updated Apr 21, 2021

    One of the oldest tricks in the leftist’s playbook is to claim being a “lifelong Republican,” before regurgitating leftist propaganda. That scam was used by the anti-Trump Lincoln Project frauds, adored by CNN, who fell from grace when their sleezy true natures came out. Nobody buys it, so pretend-Republicans might as well drop the ruse. Gordon Tinker’s recent letter starts with the “lifelong Republican” thing, before claiming agony for listening to Trump “lie, lie, lie, lie.” What is his best example of a Trump lie? It’s...

  • 'If masks don't work, why do surgeons wear them?'

    Julie Reeder, Publisher|Updated Apr 21, 2021

    Dr. Jim Meehan, a surgeon who has performed over 10,000 surgeries wearing a mask, recently wrote an op-ed where he explained the difference between surgeons wearing masks and the general public wearing masks for COVID-19. “The premise that surgeons wearing masks serves as evidence that ‘masks must work to prevent viral transmission’ is a logical fallacy that I would classify as an argument of false equivalence, or comparing ‘apples to oranges,’” Meehan said. “Although s...

  • Hello Fallbrook,

    Updated Apr 21, 2021

    My name is Gina Roberts. I’m the leader of the Kiwanis International Division in North County San Diego. For many years, there was an amazing and active Kiwanis club in Fallbrook, and for some reason, it stopped meeting and disbanded. I don’t care about the reason. I only see that some amazing opportunities for children were lost because of this closure. Kiwanis is an amazing Service Club, like Rotary, Lions, Optimists and other groups. We exist exclusively to provide an organized way to provide service to our com...

  • Managing COVID-19: Opening Fallbrook Union High School District

    Updated Apr 21, 2021

    The COVID-19 global pandemic has given everybody many challenges, especially those responsible for our students, teachers, and staff at our schools. As a board of five trustees for FUHSD, we have had to consider many aspects concerning reopening schools. Because the health and safety of students, teachers, and staff is most important, as a public institution, we must follow the science as reflected in the guidelines set by the State of California and the San Diego County Health Board and Department of Education. Failure to...

  • Protecting wild horses and burros

    Assemblymember Marie Waldron, 75th Assembly District|Updated Apr 21, 2021

    This year I am joining Assemblymember Luz Rivas (D – Arleta) to author Assembly Joint Resolution 5 (AJR 5), to urge the federal government to place a roundup moratorium on the state’s free-roaming horses and burros. Wild horses and burros can trace their North American origins way back, though current populations originated with more recent European settlement. From the 1600s to the early 1900s, California was an ideal habitat for hundreds of thousands of these mag...

  • County to consider case-by-case review of fee to trust proposals May 4

    Joe Naiman, Village News Reporter|Updated Apr 21, 2021

    The San Diego County Board of Supervisors will consider whether to replace the county’s automatic opposition of reservation fee to trust proposals with review on a case-by-case basis. A 4-1 board of supervisors vote, April 7, approved a continuance to May 4. Jim Desmond cast the dissenting vote on the grounds that he wanted the changes approved on the original day. The April 6 board of supervisors meeting lasted until approximately 11:30 p.m., so Supervisor Nora Vargas was unable to address concerns which had been raised. “Th...

    California woman says she drowned children to protect them

    Stefanie Dazio, The Associated Press|Updated Apr 21, 2021

    A California woman admitted killing her three children, saying she hugged, kissed and apologized as she drowned her infant daughter and the girl's 2-year-old and 3-year-old siblings Saturday, April 17, to save them from what she said would be a lifetime of sexual abuse. In a jailhouse interview, Liliana Carrillo told KGET-TV that she wanted to "protect" her kids – 3-year-old Joanna Denton Carrillo, her 2-year-old brother Terry and 6-month-old sister Sierra – from their fat...

    Adam Beam, The Associated Press|Updated Apr 21, 2021

    California employers added 119,600 new jobs in March, the second straight month of growth following a topsy-turvy year of enormous losses and inconsistent gains during an unpredictable pandemic. New unemployment claims, both for traditional employees and independent contractors, are at their lowest levels since the pandemic began more than a year ago. Restaurants and hotels, which have weathered heavy losses during a year of stay-at-home orders, accounted for more than half...

But this year, “The Biden administration not only abruptly and irresponsibly ended immigration policies that were successfully dis...

  • Positive COVID-19 test costs Warriors likely rugby trophy

    Joe Naiman, Village News Reporter|Updated Apr 21, 2021

    A positive COVID-19 test ended the Fallbrook High School girls rugby club trip to Florida early and likely cost the team the championship trophy. The Warriors won two April 2 games by a combined score of 84-0.
