    Joe Naiman, Village News Reporter|Updated May 31, 2021

    Although El Capitan High School's tennis team defeated Fallbrook High School in the CIF Division III championship match May 14 at the Barnes Tennis Center in San Diego, Fallbrook won three playoff matches to reach the final. The Warriors had three home matches prior to the championship match and defeated Central Union, Christian, and San Diego Jewish Academy. The results of the four playoff matches gave Fallbrook a final season record of 16-4, including 10-0 in Valley League play. "It's always good to go on a run at the end...

Our Nationwide 100-year-old DAV family continues to serve both our veterans, their families, survivors, orphans, and our communities.

  • Re: 'Where's the truth?' [Village News, Schembri letter, 5/2021]

    Updated May 26, 2021

    Letter writer Joe Schembri took exception to my previously published letter. He mentioned the “pipeline” that President Trump opened. Is he talking about the Keystone Pipeline? If he is, that pipeline was never completed. Also, he may not understand that the Keystone Pipeline was being constructed to transport shale oil that was created in Alberta, Canada to the U.S. Gulf Coast. It is well known that the oil was going to be shipped abroad. How does that help our consumers? Why did the Canadians not construct a pipeline acr...

  • Critical Race Theory -- What's the big deal? Part 2

    Julie Reeder, Publisher|Updated May 26, 2021

    Last week we focused on the Marxist/neo-Marxist roots of Critical Race Theory (CRT) which are strong, but where neo-Marxism left off, postmodernism took over, making the way for CRT today. Postmodernism has its roots in Marxism and concepts written about by French theorists in the last century, including Michel Foucault, Jacques Derrida and Jean-Francois Lyotard who were Marxist sympathizers. Postmodernism is a hard concept to describe, but it represents a set of ideas and...

  • Finding common ground

    Updated May 26, 2021

    I hear the most about the 'liberal agenda' from conservatives. I hear the most about conservative beliefs from liberals. Both sides spend more time denouncing what they think the other side believes rather than learn what those beliefs really are. Funny thing: conservatives are technically liberals. Did you know that? The term “'Conservative” is short for “Conservative Liberalism” while the term “liberal” is short for “Liberal Socialism.” They are both variants of the more general political ideology of Liberalism: the...

  • There are still acts of kindness

    Updated May 26, 2021

    Last week, I tripped in a local grocery parking lot and went down on my right knee and elbow. Before I knew it, a young woman named MaryAnn jumped out of her car to help me up. Not only that but she gave me first aid since my knee was bleeding and swelling. I looked for her name in the local phone book to say thank you in a more tangible way but, sadly, she is not listed. This letter is to say thank you to this lovely woman who put aside her plans to stay and help me. Due to my age she kept asking if I was okay. I assured...

  • A couple of rebuttals [Village News, Letters, 5/20/21]

    Updated May 26, 2021

    The rebuttal to my “Biden’s job plans” letter was going great until the last sentence, which reads: “What many people seem to miss is that money not spent on taxes is in fact going into the economy….” That is absolutely not a fact. One way or another, the wealthy elite take about 80% of America’s revenue. A substantial percentage of that money goes into the banks (foreign and domestic), overseas tax havens, and foreign investments of the wealthy elite, never to be seen here again. Critical Race Theory and Systemic Raci...

  • Expand broadband now

    Assemblymember Marie Waldron, 75th Assembly District|Updated May 26, 2021

    Access to broadband service is vital in today’s world and our rural north county area has a great need to improve access to the internet. Having a high-speed internet connection can make the difference when it comes to getting an education, a job, seeing a doctor or simply staying connected with family and friends. That’s why my caucus and I have long supported efforts to close the digital divide throughout California. A study commissioned by the California Public Uti...

  • California readies to prevent blackouts, but threats remain

    Adam Beam, The Associated Press|Updated May 26, 2021

    California’s top energy regulators said the state is better prepared to avoid last summer’s rotating blackouts, but they cautioned the power grid of the nation’s most populous state is still vulnerable to extreme heat waves that could force more outages later this year. State officials say they have acquired an additional 3,500 megawatts of capacity ahead of a likely scorching summer that threatens to increase demand beyond what the grid can handle. That includes an additional 2,000 megawatts of batteries designed to store...

  • California to drop social distancing requirements in June

    Don Thompson, Associated Press|Updated May 26, 2021

    SACRAMENTO – California no longer will require social distancing and will allow full capacity for businesses when the state reopens on June 15, the state's top health official said Friday. “We’re at a place with this pandemic where those requirements of the past are no longer needed for the foreseeable future,” Secretary of California Health and Human Services Dr. Mark Ghaly said. He said dramatically lower virus cases and increasing vaccinations mean it’s safe for California to remove nearly all restrictions next month. The...

There was an early report that the fire was holding at 25 acres from Southern California Air Operations, but Cal Fire San Diego spokesman Thomas Shoots said the correct acreage burned was seven acres, not 25.

    FUHS girls volleyball athletes awarded CIF Hall of Champions honor

    Christal Gaines-Emory, Writer|Updated May 26, 2021

    The 2020-2021 school year was an extremely stressful time for all students, including athletes who had their seasons pushed back or cancelled. Savannah (Annie) Riley was not expecting to be able to compete in volleyball this season because of the COVID-19 pandemic, so she said she was pleasantly surprised when the Fallbrook High School girls volleyball team was able to play. Although the girls volleyball season had been pushed back and cut short, Riley and varsity volleyball c...

  • Girls soccer playoffs elude Warriors

    Joe Naiman, Village News Reporter|Updated May 26, 2021

    Twelve teams were selected for the CIF Division II playoffs based on power rankings which factor records and strength of schedule. Fallbrook was 14th in the power rankings among the Division II schools. The Warriors had a 6-6-4 overall record, and their 4-3-3 statistic in Valley League play was worth third place in the six-team standings. The 2020-21 CIF girls soccer playoffs did not include Fallbrook High School. "It was a disappointment. I think we had a good squad and would have loved to make the playoffs," said Fallbrook...

  • Legionnaires take basketball standings lead with upset win over Sharks

    Joe Naiman, Village News Reporter|Updated May 26, 2021

    Prior to the May 18 basketball game between Bonsall High School and Bayfront Charter, both teams were 4-0 in Sierra League play. Bayfront took a 10-0 record into the game in Bonsall, and the Sharks were ranked first among the CIF San Diego Section's Division V teams. Bonsall's 65-53 victory gave the Legionnaires a 5-0 league record along with sole possession of first place in the standings. The Legionnaires improved their overall record to 12-5. "We had a signature game," said Bonsall coach Chuck Colletti. The 2020-21 Sierra...

  • Murphy second in Patriot League tennis tournament

    Joe Naiman, Village News Reporter|Updated May 26, 2021

    Bonsall High School junior Garret Murphy placed second in the Patriot League tennis tournament May 17 at Woodland Park in San Marcos. Murphy reached the boys singles final before losing to Dominic Smith of Horizon Prep. Murphy placed high enough to earn a berth in the CIF tournament as did Bonsall senior Dakota Thompson. Normally girls tennis is a fall sport and boys tennis is a spring sport. The coronavirus shutdown compressed the 2020-21 CIF seasons, and boys and girls tennis were combined including formal mixed doubles...

  • Loss in final game deprives Warriors of boys lacrosse playoffs

    Joe Naiman, Village News Reporter|Updated May 26, 2021

    Had Fallbrook High School's boys lacrosse team won the Warriors' final regular-season game May 18 at home against Mission Hills, the Warriors likely would have been selected to participate in the CIF Division II playoffs. The Grizzlies' victory caused Fallbrook to be omitted during the May 22 playoff selection and seeding meeting. "We unfortunately didn't get in," said Fallbrook coach Mike Zinniger. The Warriors had a 5-9 season record and were 1-4 in Valley League competition. "We had a pretty decent season," Zinniger said....
