  • Boerner Horvath's bill to restore fairness to UC admissions passes Senate

    Updated Sep 8, 2021

    SACRAMENTO – AB 1215, Assemblymember Tasha Boerner Horvath’s bill, which responds to incidents of bought-and-paid-for acceptances by installing a strict firewall between admissions and philanthropy staff, passed the Senate on a 38 – 0 bipartisan vote, Sept. 2. The bill also requires the verification of an applicant’s participation in a sport before and after their arrival on campus – a direct response to some of the more extreme tactics used by wealthy parents to jump the line in UC admissions. “These changes will help r...

  • What is atrial fibrillation?

    Updated Sep 8, 2021

    FALLBROOK – The human heart beats 60 to 100 times per minute on average, which equates to between 86,400 and 144,000 beats per day.

  • September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month

    Updated Sep 8, 2021

    FALLBROOK – September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month and for many the subject of suicide is off limits. They believe the mere mention of suicide around friends and family can cause suicidal thoughts for them. Nothing could be further from the truth. Approximately ­47,500 Americans died by their own hand in 2019, making suicide the 10th leading cause of death in this nation. Suicide rates in the US have climbed 33% in the last decade. One of the ways to reduce that number is by talking about suicide and suicidal id...

    Updated Sep 8, 2021

    Updated Sep 8, 2021

    Joe Naiman Village News Reporter The North County Fire Protection District is expected to adopt its budget Sept. 21.

  • Celebrated the life of Christina Marie Trieger

    Updated Sep 8, 2021

    As we celebrated the life of Christina Marie Trieger at The Vineyard 1924, in Temecula, on Sunday, Aug. 29, we were surrounded by such love and support we are at a loss for words. Chris began attending church at the Vineyard just a year and a half ago at the start of the pandemic but was surrounded by love and prayers every time she attended. When talks of final arrangements were discussed Chris wanted a celebration to be held at the Vineyard with all of her friends and...

  • We need to demand accountability

    Updated Sep 8, 2021

    The Biden administration has brought shame on the United States of America. An impeachment of Joe Biden alone would not be enough, it should be the whole crew, Biden, Harris, Blinken, Milley and Austin. I might add Pelosi, Schumer, the squad and I'm sure many others in the swamp, including the RINOS (Republicans in name only), Romney (whom I am distressed to say I voted for), Murkowski, Cheney and Collins. So many need to be held accountable. I pray they will. The Afghan debacle, leaving Americans and Afghan allies and...

  • Power safety power shut offs

    Updated Sep 8, 2021

  • Real Estate Round-Up: W is for warranty

    Kim Murphy, Murphy & Murphy Southern California Realty|Updated Sep 8, 2021

    Wouldn’t it be great if there was a warranty on everything in life? I for one, would love a warranty on health, or relationships. I suppose one could say that generally we all have a warranty on health. The warranty just runs out at different times for every individual. The warranty on health could be deemed to be invalid if an individual intentionally does things to undermine their health. A warranty on relationships would be awesome if it meant that a service could be p...

  • A train wreck

    Updated Sep 8, 2021

    Assemblymember Marie Waldron SD-75 Reality is setting in for the high-speed rail project. Cost overruns, construction delays and false promises may have finally doomed the project. In 2008, voters passed Prop. 1A, a $9.5 billion bond measure to help finance high-speed rail. Promises included keeping costs under $40 billion, the state’s maximum investment would be 30%, funding from federal, private and local sources would pay the rest. Additional taxpayer subsidies were prohibited, and construction could not begin until all r...

  • Newsom is anti-Second Amendment

    Updated Sep 8, 2021

    San Diego County Gun Owners, a political action committee promoting Second Amendment rights, is not endorsing a candidate in the recall election, but we are recommending a “yes” vote for removing Gov. Newsom. Don’t argue over your favorite replacement candidate. Instead, the best way to support your candidate is to encourage more people to vote to recall Newsom. Your second vote will count only if a majority votes “yes” on the first question. Newsom has been the most anti-Second Amendment governor the state has ever endu...

  • Shoes: comfort vs looks

    Elizabeth Youngman-Westlphal|Updated Sep 8, 2021

    Recently my husband asked me if my new pink lace ballet slippers were “comfortable?” Blink. Blink. “Pardon me?” I replied. As you might imagine, I am still laughing myself into hiccups. Was there ever a pair of pretty lady’s shoes designed for comfort? Certainly, none I ever bought. Actually, thinking back, I forgot. There were two times. The first time I purchased sensible footwear was when I moved from California to work in New Jersey. Just days before a record snowfall in January 1995, I bought a pair of black-lac...
