  • Review of all things Real Estate

    Bob Hillery, CR Properties|Updated Nov 10, 2022

    I heard some interesting remarks from Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell. I am in disagreement that the $16B in aid to Ukraine is the reason for our current high inflation though; we had fuel and transportation expenses rising well before the Russian invasion due to policy decisions at the national level. Our deficit for 2022 is $1.35T which well dwarfs the amount we have spent overseas to help a country maintain their freedom. To make such a statement sounds like a...

  • Funding fentanyl education

    Updated Nov 10, 2022

    Supervisor Jim Desmond 5th District It’s no secret that opioids are killing Americans at an alarming rate, specifically fentanyl. In 2021, more than 900 San Deigans died from opioid-related accidental overdoses, a 54% increase from the previous year. Over 6,000 pounds of fentanyl was seized in San Diego County last year alone, which would be enough to kill 1.4 billion people. I have made fentanyl awareness and education a top priority. We’ve declared it a crisis, funded education efforts targeting young people, held an ele...

  • Thank you for news

    Updated Nov 10, 2022

    Just wanted to say I appreciate the Fallbrook Village News. We moved here almost two years ago because Fallbrook is a great little town and its people seem to have a lot more common sense residents than some other San Diego County areas. There’s always a few bad apples anywhere you go, but Fallbrook seems to have less of them. I really appreciate Julie Reeder’s articles and just wanted to reach out and let you all know. Her views fall in line with ours and it’s a breath of fresh air to read articles that have facts and truth...

  • Indeed a sad chapter for FUESD

    Updated Nov 10, 2022

    Julie Reeder Publisher Just because somebody accuses you of something doesn't mean it's true. Just because someone threatens to bring a lawsuit doesn't prove they actually have grounds. By the time everybody reads this, the election will have happened two days ago. We just found out Monday night that the Fallbrook Union Elementary Board is congratulating itself for avoiding a long drawn out expensive potential litigation initiated by the superintendent who has decided to leave voluntarily, although she's alleging a hostile...

  • My multi-pronged approach to removing homeless encampments

    Updated Nov 10, 2022

    Senator Brian Jones District 38 California’s approach to homelessness is a failure. Tent cities are everywhere; no community is immune. The problem is huge, but there are things we can do that will make a difference in the short-term while we work to solve the long-term. On Dec. 5, the first day of the new legislative session, I will introduce a proposal to help communities clean up encampments from sensitive areas in a compassionate manner. We must protect public safety and public health, particularly where our children a...
