    Brianna Trujillo, Special to the Village News|Updated May 30, 2024

    I am from the Pala Band of Mission Indians. I am a junior at Temecula Valley High School and I'm graduating this year, a full year early, to be one step closer to my goal of being a veterinarian.

    Arianna Gastelum, Special to the Village News|Updated May 30, 2024

  • It's the market, not government, that sets prices

    Updated May 30, 2024

    Before I start, I want to say “kudos” to our Assemblywoman Marie Waldron for her always clear and concise reportage of what’s happening in Sacramento. But for Superintendent Desmond, not so much. He says we have “relentless inflation”. The fact is, inflation has been relenting for the past two years. In 2022, it peaked at 8.5 percent, but was down to 5.0 percent in 2023, and 3.4 percent in April 2024 (latest report). And the Fed (Federal Reserve) has shown that it has no intention of relenting in its effort to lower the...

  • Two great events - two great causes! Fallbrook version

    Julie Reeder, Publisher|Updated May 30, 2024

    If you missed the Fallbrook Vintage Car Show in downtown Fallbrook last Sunday, it was great. The nonprofit club brought it back into Fallbrook and took a chance holding it downtown, and it seemed like a winner to me! I was told by George Archibald, who has organized Chamber festivals and parades in the past, that he thought there were 50,000 people there. It wasn’t as crowded as the Avocado Festival, with an estimated 100,000 people, but there were more than the Christmas P...

  • Upcoming budget

    Supervisor Jim Desmond, 5th District|Updated May 30, 2024

    Over the coming weeks, the County of San Diego will actively seek community input, deliberate, make adjustments, and ultimately adopt the 2024-2025 budget. This is one of the most important times of the year because it is crucial that we spend taxpayer dollars effectively while maintaining a healthy financial state through strong operating reserves. I firmly believe that this money belongs to the community, not the government, and it must be used wisely to improve the lives...
