    Updated Jul 27, 2023

    Dr. Megan Johnson McCullough Special to the Village News The field of mathematics comes easy for some and is quite the "problem" for others.

Some of us can memorize equations and numbers, while others can actually apply math to real world functions. Many people have heard of dyslexia which is when a person has trouble with reading, spelling and writing....

    Joe Naiman Village News Reporter Annie Riley made the Fallbrook High School girls volleyball team as a freshman in 2019 and was on the all-league first team both as a sophomore and a junior. Riley opted to focus on beach volleyball as a senior and was not on the 2022 Warriors, and the strategy paid off when Riley signed to play beach volleyball at Cal State University, Long Beach. "I'm just really excited for the next four years," Riley said. "Annie is a fabulous young lady....

  • Re: 'Fire Hazard Severity Zones….' [Village News, Letter, 07/20/23]

    Updated Jul 27, 2023

    Thank you Lewis Shell for bringing up this latest attack on California Property Owners. It is outrageous that our property insurance rates can double in one year based on this FHSZ fiasco. Mine did. Yet did anyone from the insurance company come to see or even ask if I had performed prescribed "defensible space" requirements? No. Did anyone from North County Fire come check on defensible space requirements? No. It is this one party rule government attacking the average citizen/property owner once again by siding with big...

  • SB 14: Addressing human trafficking as a serious felony

    Updated Jul 27, 2023

    Supervisor Jim Desmond 5th District Last week, the State Assembly's Public Safety Committee failed to approve Senate Bill 14, which would have classified human trafficking as a serious felony and subjected it to the Three Strikes Law in California. It was disheartening to see as human trafficking is categorized as a "non-serious" crime, undermining its severity and neglecting the urgent need to protect our most vulnerable populations from this modern-day slavery. A few days later, the Assembly's Public Safety Committee revers...

  • Preventing child trafficking

    Updated Jul 27, 2023

    Assemblymember Marie Waldron 75th District Human trafficking is the second largest and fastest growing illicit industry after drug trafficking. Worldwide, it’s estimated that there are over 40 million victims of human trafficking with 75% being women and girls, and 25% being children.

  • Issa to Newsom: Stop Bullying Temecula

    Updated Jul 27, 2023

    Congressman Darrell Issa 48th District Following California Governor Gavin Newsom’s constant attacks and social media frenzy against the Temecula School Board, Congressman Darrell Issa (CA-48) issued the following statement: “I stand with the parents of Temecula. The School Board is doing right by listening to concerned parents and educators and trying to work together to appropriately curate the studies that will be presented to the youngest of students.

  • Totalitarian tactics to censor RFK, Jr during censorship hearing fail

    Updated Jul 27, 2023

    Julie Reeder Publisher Last Thursday, there was a hearing on censorship during a select subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government. (If you don’t think that is happening, you aren’t watching or reading enough news sites.) It is a new fact of life. If you are a real journalist uncovering embarrassing things in our government, like Project Veritas, then you will have the FBI at your door arresting you. Unless, of course, your last name is Biden, as we heard from the whistleblowers last week. If you are a...

  • Exposing the two faces of Bidenomics

    Updated Jul 27, 2023

    What are we to make of Biden's lofty remarks touting the virtues of Bidenomics? Were his words just platitudes falling out of his partisan mouth? Or were they the incoherent and emotionally charged rants of a cognitively impaired man? And what exactly is Bidenomics anyway? Is it a vain attempt to reinvent or perhaps salvage Biden's mediocre political record? Or is Bidenomics a sorted tale of a well-oiled crime syndicate that has fashioned an elaborate web of LLCs to hide the millions of dollars made from selling political...

  • Kicking It up in Alaska

    Updated Jul 27, 2023

    Elizabeth Youngman-Westphal Special to The Village News What you probably do not know is the whole month of September is moose-hunting season across Alaska. On one hand, those crafty native Innuits want you to buy a moose tag; on the other hand, as you are invited up to shoot a moose anywhere within the state, there is one wee caveat: many villages require each hunter to present him/her/they/them/their oneself in person. To further clarify, no one can buy another person’s moose tag. Which means each hunter must actually...

  • Top highlights from legislative session

    Updated Jul 27, 2023

    Senate Minority Leader Brian W. Jones 40th Senate District The State Legislature is on recess until Aug. 14. I’ve enjoyed spending more time in the district and talking directly with constituents about important issues and our fight in Sacramento. While there are only five weeks left in this legislative session once we return, California Senate Republicans have scored multiple victories over the past few months. San Francisco Chronicle’s Emily Hoeven got it right in her column, “California Democrats are taking absurd...
