Rants & Raves
RANT: I guess the Easter bunny is no longer politically correct. Dos Picos County Park held its egg hunt (not Easter egg) this past weekend and as part of the event you could have your picture taken with the Easter — nope, sorry — the Spring Bunny. Really? Pretty soon, the only holidays we can celebrate will only include the month or season it falls in. So Happy Spring! to everyone; can’t wait for Merry December.
RAVE: The Every Fifteen Minutes program that many high schools implement, including Ramona High. This simulation is as real as it can get and, if just one student totally understands the responsibility you take when you get behind the wheel, it’s accomplished the goal;. You don’t need any more reason than what just happened recently.
RAVE: Thirty-five years in business in the same town is quite an accomplishment — even more so when the same family runs it. Congrats to Ron’s Tire & Brake and the Borchardt family.
RANT: Go ahead and talk, we’ll pretend we’re listening. The recent vote for the expansion of Highland Valley Ranch was approved by the county Planning Commission, then the Board of Supervisors approved the permit change, even with our local supervisor voting against it and our Ramona Community Planning Group voting against it. Now we’ll just wait and see how the California Public Utilities Commission votes in regard to SDG&E and the rate increase they want to impose to pay for the Witch Fire. Is anybody listening to what the community has to say?
RAVE: To the 20th Annual Bulldog Invitational Track and Field Meet held March 27 at Ramona High. This is one of the best events all year and one you really need to experience.
One last note: “When all is said and done, it only matters what’s done.”
