Family wants its Yorkie back

Reward offered for family dog missing from east side of town.

Our black with brown mini Yorkie mix went missing on Friday, Dec. 30. We believe he was picked up by someone in a white car.

If you mistakenly took him thinking he was a stray, please, please return him. We miss him so much.

Call 760-994-8312 or 760-994-8314 — no questions asked. We just want our family member home!

Dancing around the facts

You know how I feel about how much influence citizens of Ramona have over the decisions of the RCPG and the County of San Diego Planning Dept. but, thanks to Jeff Mitchell’s editorial in the Sentinel, I thought of a new quote from one of my favorite RCPG members, Bob Hailey. I thought his following quote would be worthy of Ramona’s file titled “this is why we need to vote Bob Hailey (and some other members) off the RCPG.”

While I was discussing a topic with one of Bob Hailey’s friends with Bob present, the topic of why the new school on Boundary was constructed in such an inaccessible location, Bob proudly stated, ”you can thank me for that.”

Not knowing the reason one would take credit for such a poor decision (evidently, he was on the school board at the time that decision to expend a few million dollars for a new school when the future of Ramona school district’s cash flow was in doubt). It took Jeff Mitchell (publisher of the Ramona Sentinel) to remind me of an old saying, “stupid is what stupid gets.”

Read the Mitchell editorial about how the Ramona school district is seriously hurting for money. Unfortunately, he only uses the old liberal phrase, ”the way we can solve this problem is to work together.” Sometimes I want to vomit when I hear that phrase “we have to work together” — like its gonna solve every problem mankind will/has ever faced. Jeff, c’mon, sometime one has to man up and really say something of substance.

You should’ve said, ”we had too many stupid people on the school board over the last 25 years…we kept giving too much to the school union demands…we didn’t understand the birthrate trends over the last 25 years.”

Well, folks, a big “duh” to Jeff and the school

boards and all the people of Ramona that don’t care and not only voted for the school board in the past but also the Ramona Community Planning Group.

Next time, Jeff, say what you should’ve said instead of dancing around the facts.

Vandals destroy Winter Wonderland

How sad.

Every year for the past six years children and teens have vandalized the Christmas lights on our home, crushing reindeer, cutting wires and stealing.

Every year I have said to myself “They can’t dampen the spirit of the holidays.” I guess I have come to the conclusion the time and money spent is not worth the pain that it causes my wife and I when it happens.

This year was the best and at approximately 10:15 p.m. (Dec. 21) a group of vandals went across our lawn and damaged the “Winter Wonderland” that we worked so hard to put up.

It has been nice to receive one of the prizes the last few years from the  San Diego Country Estates Association for the display and to have so many thank us for the display.

Reindeer removed and waterfalls turned off, we will leave a skeleton of what was, maybe set all in our own backyard — not the same as a gift to everyone else to see.
