  • 'I want a future': Global youth protests urge climate action

    JENNIFER PELTZ and FRANK JORDANS Associated Press|Updated Sep 21, 2019

    NEW YORK (AP) — Young people afraid for their futures protested around the globe Friday to implore leaders to tackle climate change, turning out by the hundreds of thousands to insist that the warming world can't wait any longer. Marches, rallies and demonstrations were held from Canberra to Kabul and Cape Town to New York. More than 100,000 turned out in Berlin. Days before a U.N. climate summit of world leaders, the "Global Climate Strike" events were as small as two dozen activists in Seoul using LED flashlights to send Mo...

  • Revelers reach gates of Area 51 then peacefully rejoin party

    KEN RITTER Associated Press|Updated Sep 21, 2019

    HIKO, Nev. (AP) — Thousands of curious Earthlings from around the globe traveled to festivals, and several hundred made forays toward the secret Area 51 military base in the Nevada desert on Friday, drawn by an internet buzz and a social media craze sparked by a summertime Facebook post inviting people to "Storm Area 51." "They can't stop all of us," the post joked. "Lets see them aliens." In the end — at the appointed hour of 3 a.m. Sept. 20 — about 75 to 100 people braved chilly darkness and a bumpy, dusty 8-mile (13-k...

  • California campaign will warn public of vaping dangers

    Kathleen Ronayne Associated Press|Updated Sep 21, 2019

    California will spend $20 million on a public awareness campaign about the dangers of vaping nicotine and cannabis products and step up efforts to halt the sale of illicit products amid a rise in vaping-related illnesses. Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom announced the actions Monday, Sept. 16, as part of an executive order. Many of the hundreds of nationwide vaping illnesses appear linked to use of cannabis-based oils, though some people reported vaping nicotine products, according to the Centers for Disease Control and...

  • US economy could shrug off oil prices if disruption is brief

    The Associated Press|Updated Sep 21, 2019

    David Koenig\ The price of gasoline crept higher after a weekend attack devastated Saudi Arabian oil output, but if the disruption to global supplies is short-lived, the impact on the U.S. economy will probably be modest. Prices spiked Monday by more than 14%, their biggest single-day jump in years, but retreated Tuesday, reversing some of the increase. U.S. oil fell nearly 5% to $59.96 a barrel, while Brent, the international benchmark, dropped 5.3% to $65.34. A gallon of regular in the U.S. stood at $2.59 Tuesday, Sept....

  • Purdue Pharma begins Chapter 11 bankruptcy journey

    The Associated Press|Updated Sep 21, 2019

    Tom Murphy and Anne D’Innocenzio Purdue Pharma will get its day in court Tuesday, Sept. 24, after the OxyContin maker filed for bankruptcy and negotiated a potential multi-billion dollar settlement to resolve thousands of lawsuits. An initial hearing will be held in federal court in White Plains, New York, for the Chapter 11 bankruptcy case. Purdue filed for bankruptcy protection late Sunday, the first step in a plan it says would provide $10 billion to $12 billion to help reimburse state and local governments and clean up t...

  • Back to basics: Congress tries to keep government lights on

    Updated Sep 21, 2019

    Andrew Taylor - The Associated Press The good news is that it doesn’t look like a bitterly polarized Washington will stumble into another government shutdown. But as Democrats controlling the House unveil a stopgap, governmentwide spending bill to keep the lights on and pay the troops, there’s scant evidence that power sharing in the Capitol will produce further legislative accomplishments anytime soon. The measure, likely to be released Tuesday, Sept. 17, is set for a vote this week and would keep the government running thr...

  • New venues help increase county's TOT revenue

    Joe Naiman, Village News Correspondent|Updated Sep 20, 2019

    Good economic conditions have contributed to an increase in San Diego County’s transient occupancy tax revenue, and an increase in the number of places to stay in unincorporated San Diego is also a factor in the increased TOT revenue. On a countywide basis, TOT revenue increased from $5,105,749.14 in fiscal year 2017-2018 to $5,784,173.63 for 2018-2019. Fallbrook’s TOT revenue increased from $338,613.53 to $540,602.11, although a late-received payment credited to the first quarter of 2018-2019 rather than the fourth qua...

    Joe Naiman, Village News Correspondent|Updated Sep 20, 2019

    San Diego County will obtain two new agricultural easements soon, including one on a 143.41-acre property in Rainbow.

  • Improving mental health treatment

    Assemblymember Marie Waldron|Updated Sep 20, 2019

    As the legislature adjourns for the year, I’m happy to report that two significant bills impacting mental health treatments in California are heading to the governor’s desk. This session I introduced Assembly Bill 1352, legislation that strengthens the voice of local mental health boards to help meet the needs of the mentally ill. The Bronzan-McCorquodale Act requires county mental health systems to provide services to those with serious emotional disturbance or mental ill...

    Updated Sep 20, 2019

    With regard to the lengthy opinion published in Village News, Sept. 5, I stand so in awe of such magnificent, “Kool-Aid”-induced incoherence that I am rendered speechless and so can have nothing further to say on the matter. Georgiana Silvestro...

  • Hi Barry,

    Updated Sep 20, 2019

    I chose your letter to respond to because you took the time to be very specific and I appreciate the fact that you weren't inflammatory. Here are the answers to your questions and comments. I'm sure you agree that the charity fundraising success stories are legitimate stories in our town as that's how many efforts are funded that preserve our way of life, without a city government. We didn't miss the water pipeline shutdown or aquaduct issue. There was coverage on the front page Aug. 29, 2019, and again in a more in depth...

  • Still shaking my head

    Updated Sep 20, 2019

    I keep asking myself, what is wrong with these people and thinking that people only want to hear their views? How uneducated, sad and ridiculous this sounds to stifle or, I think, try to eliminate our right to freedom of speech, which is their real agenda. Julie Reeder, I am so sorry people don’t want to hear what your job is: to report the news accurately, unbiased and fact checked with no anonymous influences. Like I said before, nobody reads The New York Times, The Washington Post and others. Nobody listens to CNN, M...

  • My view of our news

    Updated Sep 20, 2019
    1

    I confess I am bewildered by the turn that the Village News has taken recently. I have subscribed for many years because the Los Angeles Times and the San Diego Union-Tribune rarely cover local Fallbrook news, so the Village News has filled a void by running features such as the events calendar and including many photos of our neighbors. I’d even gotten used to the puff pieces, press release reprints and “Another charity’s fundraiser is a big success” stories. Now it’s true that the Village News missed many important...

    Updated Sep 20, 2019

Thomas Furrh of Vista and Matthew Jones of Santee, both under 21, are listed as plaintiffs, along with four gun advocate groups and three retail gun shops in San Diego County. The four gun advocate gro...

  • My office is here to help

    Jim Desmond, Special to Village News|Updated Sep 20, 2019

    I know what most people think: Government is slow and tied down by bureaucratic red tape. While that may be true in some instances, my office and staff team is here to serve our residents. For unincorporated area communities such as Pauma Valley, Rainbow, De Luz and Rancho Santa Fe, the county is the local government and provides municipal services such as roads and infrastructure and law enforcement. Since becoming the San Diego County District 5 supervisor in January, my office has focused on serving our communities. To...
