  • Critical Race Theory - What's the big deal

    Julie Reeder|Updated Jun 9, 2021

    In previous pieces in this series, as well as other editorials over the last year, we’ve learned that with Critical Race Theory race is primary, rather than individuality, even though some proponents believe race does not biologically exist (like gender). Race is just a social construct, but how we identify with race is what shapes our lives, and yet “whiteness” equals “racist.” Nevertheless, people are divided and reduced to categories of “Blackness” and “Whiteness....

    Four more bills pass Assembly

    Assemblymember Tasha Boerner Horvath, 76th district|Updated Jun 9, 2021

    This week, four more of my bills passed the Assembly and are one big step closer to becoming law! These bills aim to make our state a fairer, safer, healthier, and more sustainable place to live. Here's what made it out this week: AB 66: Bluff Collapse Early Warning Notification System Creates the science around bluff collapses on our coast. Initiates the first phase in creating an early warning notification system to alert beach-goers of dangers. Keeps our beaches and...

    Manchin's opposition clouds future of Dems' elections bill

    Associated Press|Updated Jun 9, 2021

    WASHINGTON (AP) – A key Democratic senator says he will not vote for the largest overhaul of U.S. election law in at least a generation, leaving no plausible path forward for legislation that his party and the White House have portrayed as crucial. "Voting and election reform that is done in a partisan manner will all but ensure partisan divisions continue to deepen,'' Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia wrote in a home-state newspaper, the Charleston Gazette-Mail. He wrote t...

  • A salute to Dads

    Dr. Rick Koole, Special to the Village News|Updated Jun 9, 2021

    Shortly after the Ethiopian Civil War ended in 1991, I flew into Addis Ababa to speak to pastors from around the country. I’ll never forget what I saw on the trip from the airport to the compound where I was to stay; the streets seemed to be filled with dozens of one-legged men walking along the dusty roads. When I asked what had caused this, I was told it was from stepping on landmines during the war. They lacked “minesweepers” to walk before them with the tools to detec...

  • Rainbow MWD board approves Heli-Hydrant at Pala Mesa

    Joe Naiman, Village News Reporter|Updated Jun 9, 2021

    The Rainbow Municipal Water District will be adding a Heli-Hydrant fire protection system on its Pala Mesa site. A 5-0 Rainbow board vote May 25 added the Heli-Hydrant project to Rainbow's capital improvement plan, appropriated $149,728 from the district's capital reserve fund, and authorized Rainbow general manager Tom Kennedy to execute the contracts required to procure and install the equipment. "We're really excited about this," Kennedy said. Prior to 2012 firefighting helicopters extracted water from reservoirs which...

    Christal Gaines-Emory, Writer|Updated Jun 9, 2021

    An apartment building in Vista suffered a large fire that is currently under investigation, May 29. One of the families affected was the Chrisholms. Jamie Chrisholm had been a Fallbrook resident for 39 years before relocating to Vista last month, but her family has been a part of the community for over 60 years. She has two children, Anthony, 14, and Elliot, 18, who graduated from Fallbrook High on June 3. At 12:30 a.m., the family was awakened suddenly to a neighbor knocking on their door and warning them about the fire on...

  • Ex-CDC director says he received death threats from fellow scientists for supporting COVID-19 lab-leak theory

    Greg Price, Contributor|Updated Jun 9, 2021

    Former Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Robert Redfield says he received death threats from fellow scientists after voicing support for the idea coronavirus originated from a lab in Wuhan. As part of a sweeping investigation into the battles inside the federal government over the origins of COVID-19 in the early days of the pandemic, Vanity Fair reported on the backlash Redfield received from the scientific community after telling CNN in March that he believes the virus accidentally escaped from the Wuhan...

    Security, intelligence failures found in days before Jan. 6 attack: Senate report

    Zachary Stieber, Epoch Times|Updated Jun 9, 2021

    U.S. Capitol Police intelligence officials failed to share information they received in the days and weeks leading up to Jan. 6, contributing to the agency being unprepared for what transpired that day, according to a new Senate report. The federal intelligence community, led by the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security, did not issue a threat assessment warning of potential violence targeting the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, despite online calls for violence, the 128-page...

    Tiered dispatching coming to Fallbrook

    Rick Monroe, Special to the Village News|Updated Jun 9, 2021

    Beginning July 1, the number of emergency flashing lights and sirens blaring on Code 1 calls in the area may be decreasing. That's because a new procedure called Tiered Dispatching will go into effect. "Tiered dispatching will allow the dispatcher to have more time with the 911 caller to dig deeper," explained Kevin Mahr, division chief of operations for the North County Fire District, based in Fallbrook. "That helps the dispatcher make a better choice on what units to send...

  • San Diego County is being taken advantage of

    Supervisor Jim Desmond, 5th District|Updated Jun 9, 2021

    The federal government is taking advantage of San Diego County and it shows no sign of stopping. Over the last few weeks, I’ve been briefed on the situation at our Southern Border. After seeing the heartbreaking pictures of kids in cramped quarters and the increased risk of being sexually trafficked, I’ve been deeply troubled by many aspects. After learning that the state and the federal government are also refusing to test those entering the United States for COVID-19, I’m wo...

  • Earth is not our trash can

    Updated Jun 9, 2021

    What person on earth thinks it is okay to take their drive thru lunch and throw it out of the car in a parking lot? Every weekend I go to Lowe's in Temecula to pick up our home project materials and sadly see trash from Cane's chicken restaurant thrown on the parking lot from both sides of a car in many parking spaces. There are trash cans outside Cane's and Lowe's and the drivers have trash cans at home. The drivers can also put the trash back in the paper bag and store in the car trunk until they get home. Anything but...

  • Today's Democratic Party

    Updated Jun 9, 2021

    There was a time when Democrats and Republicans were proud of our heritage, saluted our flag, stood for our anthem, and praised the “Almighty” for being Americans. Back then, we shared our mutual respect and pride for our nation openly and often. Presidents of both parties hailed the magnificence of our great nation with words that filled our hearts with pride and adulation. But the days of standing shoulder to shoulder to celebrate our nation’s birth or to set aside our political differences on Memorial Day while we pay h...

  • Real Estate Round-Up: N is for negotiating part 2

    Kim Murphy, Murphy and Murphy Southern Realty|Updated Jun 9, 2021

    Last week I focused on how important negotiating is when a Realtor represents a buyer. The key to success always starts with trust and confidence, that the Realtor can help the buyer achieve their goal of purchasing a property. In a fast paced, challenging market, like we are currently operating in, that trust and confidence is the centerpiece to writing the best offer possible, that both protects the buyer’s interest, yet is appealing enough to the seller. A skilled, e...

  • Re: 'Woke foundations use dollars acquired through capitalism to under mine free market principles' [Village News, Graber letter, 5/27/21]

    Updated Jun 9, 2021

    Here are a few of the shortcomings of the subject editorial. Graber first questions whether corporations should donate to charities at all and specifically questions funding for social justice efforts. He asks, rhetorically, “Have the billions of dollars spent on it [social justice reform] resulted in greater equity and quality of life for those it purports to help?” You’re supposed to say “no.” This does beg these questions: If America’s social justice system is so great, why are people and corporations so eager to donate f...

  • Transitional Kindergarten – success for all

    Assemblymember Marie Waldron, 75th District|Updated Jun 9, 2021

    I’m very proud to jointly author Assembly Bill 22 (AB 22) with Assemblymember Kevin McCarty (D – Sacramento). AB 22 will phase in Transitional Kindergarten for all California four-year-olds by the 2032-33 school year. Transitional Kindergarten programs have a major positive impact on all participating students, including language skills for English learners and math skills for low-income students. Too many children enter kindergarten unprepared, but research shows that acc...

The one-hitter was also the first career complete game for Baker, who is a junior. "He got ahead of everybody, threw strikes," said Fallbrook coach Patrick Walker.
