  • Tips for protecting kids from predators and some apps they use

    Updated May 17, 2023

    Julie Reeder Publisher Historically, in our quiet suburban neighborhoods, the summer season would arrive and people would prepare for outdoor barbecues, swimming, fishing, and laughter. Children would take advantage of more freedom to enjoy outdoor adventures in the neighborhood and beyond, especially locally, where we have rivers, ponds, groves, etc. Amidst this excitement, however, parents have always had to be aware of their children’s safety. Young people are outside less and less wIth the rise of technology in our l...

  • CDs can be part of your investment strategy

    Updated May 17, 2023

    FALLBROOK – In the financial world, stocks and stock based mutual funds often get a lot of attention. And deservedly so because they often form the core of a portfolio. But to help achieve your goals, you may also want to consider a broader array of investments – one of which may be a certificate of deposit (CD). As you may know, a CD earns interest on a lump sum for a designated period. You can purchase CDs whose maturities range from a few months to 10 or more years. Generally, the longer-term the CD, the higher the int...

  • The special election will negatively affect students

    Updated May 17, 2023

    The situation with the Fallbrook High School special election has brought to the forefront issues and discussions that we Fallbrookians must have if we are to continue to move forward. The election of Courtney Hilborn, who was backed by the “Fallbrook Freedom Fighters,” or FFF, and voted in by conservative voters in Zone 1 of the FUHSD, and then her almost immediate subsequent resignation caused a vacancy that the board of trustees had to fill. The three remaining board members agreed to appoint a provisional member who wou...

  • Hypocrisy on Fentanyl

    Updated May 17, 2023

    Senate Minority Leader Brian W. Jones California 40th Senate District This week on the Senate Floor, I called out Democrat lawmakers’ hypocrisy on the fentanyl crisis. Just days after rejecting several meaningful measures aimed at holding deadly fentanyl dealers accountable, Senate Democrats passed a resolution acknowledging Fentanyl Awareness Day and the dangers of the drug. This resolution has zero legal impact on the crisis. Democrat lawmakers chose optics over action while fentanyl dealers get off the hook and kids get d...

    Updated May 17, 2023

    Elizabeth Youngman-Westphal Special to The Village News October 10, 2012: We quickly find out this morning why a prepaid museum pass is second only to getting a 30-day bus pass. While throngs of people wait in the line around I.M. Pei’s glass pyramid, we skip to the front, passes in hand! This is our first trip to the legendary Musée du Louvre. Once a palace to kings and queens, today it is one of the most visited museums in the world with nearly 11 million visitors annually. First, on our agenda is to see the “Mona Lisa...

  • Special election

    Updated May 17, 2023

    Supervisor Jim Desmond 5th District Nathan Fletcher has let San Diego down. His actions have left a vacant seat and the Board of Supervisors were left with a decision of what to do in order to fill it. We were faced with three options. 1. Hold a special election. 2. Start the appointment process. 3. Start the appointment process until a special election.

  • The story behind the Fallbrook Special Election and "Fallbrook Freedom Fighters"

    Updated May 17, 2023

    No one knew what to expect in March 2020. My husband, a high school teacher, and myself, a homeschool charter teacher, did what every other parent did at the time. Kept their kids home. We are parents to five children. As time went on, and the virus promised to not negatively affect children, we ventured out, careful to protect those older than us. We watched as normalcy resumed in the classrooms in other states, and statistics rolled in that negated the need for masking children. We started to grow concerned about the...

  • Dialog is better than name calling

    Updated May 17, 2023

    Julie Reeder Publisher "Racist!", "Homophobe", "book banner!" bla bla bla. Bullying and name calling are a lazy and low class way to try and dismiss someone without having the decency to actually have dialogue. Or maybe people do it because they don't have the ability to discuss the topic intelligently. Or it seems as if some people just think so highly of themselves that they can be rude and mistreat others because they are entitled. Not sure! But as soon as I encounter someone who chooses name calling, I see it as...
