  • Speedy summer side dishes

    Updated Aug 20, 2017

    Around my house it never fails. We are relaxing with a cup of coffee on our pool deck and my brother-in-law calls to catch up with us. At the end of the conversation, my husband invites him up for a barbecue, something I am never prepared for. I rush to the freezer and pull out some chicken, chops or steaks for the main course, but what will I serve on the side? This problem used to send me rushing to the store looking for something in a box that I can whip up quickly and stil...

    It didn’t take long for Derek Lee, the new band director at Fallbrook High School, to sniff out a goal – new uniforms for band members. “The first time they brought them out into the room for uniform fittings, they had a pretty strong, wretched smell to them, like 20 years of sweat and blood and tears that went into them,” said Lee. “So, I see that as a problem.

    Updated Aug 20, 2017

    Assemblymember Marie Waldron AD-75 (R) Processes in the State Capitol are way out of date. During the 7-8 months I spend in Sacramento annually, I use much of my time working and voting on legislation, and meeting with advocacy groups and constituents to discuss legislation. Even so, keeping up with constituent and district concerns isn’t easy when you’re over 500 miles away. Shortening the legislative calendar and using modern technology would let legislators spend more time...
