An agreement was needed for a foundation to pay Grossmont College and Cuyamaca College students to be instructional assistants at BUSD schools, but that was...

  • Trump must be held accountable for his crimes against our country

    Updated Jun 27, 2024

    It’s official: After making secret hush money payments to an adult film star 11 days before the 2016 election and falsifying official filings to hide the truth from the public, Donald Trump has been found guilty by a New York jury. Trump’s conviction in New York should remind us all that no one – including a former president – is above the law. It should also remind us of the danger that Trump still poses to our democracy. In the final weeks of the 2016 election, Trump covered up his affair with Stormy Daniels to dupe vo...

  • Trump committed serious crimes and should not be president again

    Julie Reeder, Publisher|Updated Jun 27, 2024

    Julian Assange, the founder of Wikileaks and an Australian journalist, has entered into a plea agreement with the United States, according to court filings. It's a deal that allows him to sidestep additional prison time, after fighting extradition to the U.S. and living for seven years in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London. He then spent five years in a UK prison, HMP Belmarsh, described by some as "the Guantanamo Bay of Britain." Under the terms of the agreement disclosed...

  • National Police Association scam

    Updated Jun 27, 2024

    You have to laugh when a scam organization is so dumb (or brazen) as to send a mailed request for money and say that “the Fallbrook City Council Members need to hear from you." Obviously it’s the same scam organization that pollutes the phone lines with fake requests for money. I couldn't resist using their prepaid envelope to send an appropriate reply. Perhaps others in our Friendly Village have received the same solicitation and I hope that they also use the opportunity to send a little note that highlights the fact tha...

    Supervisor Jim Desmond, 5th District|Updated Jun 27, 2024

New research suggested that the most severe iron insufficiency cases are flagged, while individuals with moderately low – but still health-impacting – levels can be overlooked at times. Many women whose well-being is undermined by low iron are not getting the help they need. In addition to iro...
