  • Re: 'Julian Assange case may have serious implications for journalists' [Village and Valley News, Reeder Letter, 6/9/22]

    Updated Jun 15, 2022

    Though I always tear through my weekly copy of Valley News to get to your Opinion column first, I must say that I was surprised and disappointed with your most recent discussion in defense of Mr. Assange. The issue with Mr. Assange is not freedom of the press, which I declare is a right we all will agree with and support vigorously but an issue of espionage and subterfuge. If Mr. Assange wants to voice opinions or even facts in evidence on corruption or malfeasance on the part of any elected or appointed official, I would agr...

  • Dumping ground for sexually violent predators?

    Updated Jun 15, 2022

    Assemblymember Marie Waldron 75th District What happens to Sexually Violent Predators once they’ve served their sentences? Apparently, they get dumped in rural San Diego County. Rural areas lack resources to supervise conditionally released SVPs and guarantee public safety. In San Diego County, multiple SVPs have been placed in Jacumba Hot Springs, Campo and Boulevard, with proposed placements in communities like Pauma Valley and Borrego Springs. I’ve written letters in the past opposing placement of SVPs in rural com...

  • What does a Supervisor supervise?

    Updated Jun 15, 2022

    Supervisor Jim Desmond 5th District One of the questions I get asked frequently is, “What does a Supervisor supervise?” Many people aren’t sure what a County Supervisor does, so I wanted to explain a bit about what my role is as your county representative. The county is the local government entity for the unincorporated area (everywhere not in a city). In North County, that entails Valley Center, Fallbrook, Bonsall, Borrego Springs, Pauma Valley, and Rainbow, Ranchita...just to name a few communities. For these commu...

  • Stumbling blocks on the way to our future

    Updated Jun 15, 2022

    There was nothing last week warranting my rebuttal. There was Mr. Maynard’s claim that a border wall would keep out illegal immigrants. However, there’s a device that makes the wall totally ineffective: it’s called a ladder. So let’s talk about America’s history of slavery. Republican leaders claim that Critical Race Theory teaches children to feel guilty for our country’s history of slavery. It does not. It doesn’t require a PhD to understand that no one is responsible for the actions – good or bad – of their predecessors: p...

  • Keeping up with the Capitol

    Updated Jun 15, 2022

    Sen. Brian Jones 38th District June is a busy month up at the Sacramento Capitol. Committees will be hearing hundreds of bills and the state budget must be passed by June 15. Two issues to watch out for are rent relief and wildfires. Rent is skyrocketing across California and, specifically, in San Diego. I’m taking action to help renters with Senate Bill 843. As a co-author of this bill, we are increasing the renters’ tax credit for the first time in 42 years to $500 for individuals and $1,000 for couples and individuals wit...

    Updated Jun 15, 2022

Today, the cost of water in the S...

  • Kicking Covid

    Updated Jun 15, 2022

    Elizabeth Youngman-Westphal Special to The Village News It is my hope you never discover what Covid is like. Cause, it ain’t nothing. For me, it was a rough week. Here’s what happened to us. First of all, everyone that boarded the Grand Princess ship headed to Hawaii April 4 had to show proof of a supervised-negative-Covid test result taken within the last 48-hours before boarding in San Pedro. Since we are both vaccinated early and boostered one time each, neither of us were concerned about getting a nega...
