  • Healthy community, healthy you – pasta – noodle lover's dish

    Updated Jun 28, 2023

    Dr. Megan Johnson McCullough Special to the Village News Pasta is one of those foods that gets a bad reputation, but remains a popular staple of the American diet. The truth lies in the type of pasta, what you're eating with it, and the quantity you are consuming. The traditional restaurant's serving size for your dish is nearly four servings, which is well over the amount you should have or even need in one meal. Pasta can be part of a healthy diet, but we don't associate...

  • Are you prepared for emergencies?

    Updated Jun 28, 2023

    Carol Huss Special to the Village News It is vital and comforting for all of us to be prepared for emergencies and know how to respond to that emergency, whether it’s a medical accident or local disaster. In the early stages of a catastrophic disaster, citizens will likely be on their own, so being self-sufficient and able to assist others is achieved through learning some training in basic first aid and disaster preparedness. In 1994, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) provided a basic training program for us cal...

  • Review of all things Real Estate: What kind of market are we currently in?

    Bob Hillery, CR Properties|Updated Jun 28, 2023

    I get this question a lot; are we in a seller’s market, a buyer’s market, or a neutral market? The follow-up question inevitably is, what is the market going to do? To that question, I generally respond that if I knew that answer with certainty, I’d be a rich man today. Here’s what I do know however (let’s see if these statistics are meaningful to everyone). As of Friday afternoon, June 23, there were 108 active listings in 92028 across all categories (manufactured homes, co...

  • City of San Diego pulls 11th-hour stunt in hopes of preventing Fallbrook and Rainbow from changing water suppliers

    Updated Jun 28, 2023

    “Laws are like sausages,” said Otto Von Bismark, the former Chancellor of Germany. “It’s better not to see them being made.” This famous quote – made more than 100 years ago – certainly applies to what we’re seeing today from the City of San Diego as Fallbrook and Rainbow seek to change water suppliers. As you are probably aware, we have filed detachment applications, as they are called, with the San Diego Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCO) to part ways with the San Diego County Water Authority, which has raised wate...

  • San Onofre Power Plant

    Updated Jun 28, 2023

    Supervisor Jim Desmond 5th District The importance of removing spent nuclear fuel cannot be overstated. The safe and responsible management of this hazardous material is paramount for protecting public health, the environment, and future generations. Spent nuclear fuel is safely being stored at San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS), but that is not a permanent solution. Over the past four and a half years, I have served as the County of San Diego representative on the SONGS Community Engagement Panel. This quarterly...

  • Unincorporated Fallbrook and Rainbow vs big government, big cities

    Updated Jun 28, 2023
    1

    Julie Reeder Publisher On July 10, LAFCO directors will meet and vote on whether FPUD and RMWD can detach from the San Diego Water Authority (SDWA) to join Eastern Municipal Water District (EMWD). They have been mulling it over for three years. It’s an amount of business that is very small, compared to SDWA’s entire budget. FPUD only accounts for 1.3% of SDWA’s total budget and their budget margin of error is + or - 6%. So what is the big deal? The deal is power and control. This is a great example of why local control is so...

  • Kicking It: Our last days in Paris

    Updated Jun 28, 2023

    Elizabeth Youngman-Westphal Special to The Village News Well into our fourth week in Paris, we are running out of things to do that we haven’t done before. Even so, I’m guessing we’ve seen more of Paris than the people living here. Isn’t that always the way? Of all of the museums we’ve visited, and some multiple times, we are going today to the home of modern (they pronounce it “moe-dern”) art in Paris – Le Pompidou. It isn’t particularly attractive compared to the many old beautiful buildings around the city because this...

    This is simple. Seiders believes it is her right to decide what is published and where it is published. Well, people in the United States are blessed with the right to make their own choices. Newspapers can publish what they choose and print it where they choose. Seiders is blessed with the right to choose to read it or not. She thinks it would be better on every level if it were in the religious section, as in, “Warning, this a religious article.” She, as everyone, has the right to read what they want, watch what they wan...
