“Booster clubs are just there for the football team,” seems to be what many believe of most high school booster groups. That’s not the case at Ramona High School.
Ramona Bulldog Booster Club (RBBC) raises a lot of money at football games but gives the majority of the money raised to everyone else. The football team gets a percentage of snack bar sales and season tickets purchased, but the remainder of the funds raised at the games and through other fundraisers goes into the bank to provide monetary grants to the not so high profile team sports and clubs.
With the Labor Day weekend winding down, California Highway Patrol reported that arrests for suspicion of driving under the influence were up, but fatalities were down countywide this year compared to last.
Between Friday, Aug. 29, at 6 p.m. and 6 a.m. today, there were 72 DUI arrests reported this year compared to 57 in 2013. There were no fatalities this year during the same period. In 2013 there were two fatalities.
San Diego Gas & Electric customers will have an opportunity to give their opinions on how proposed rate changes would affect them when the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) holds hearings next month in the county.
According to the CPUC, the state lifted restrictions on residential rates with the signing of Assembly Bill 327 in October 2013, and utilities can now propose residential rates that are more reflective of cost. The CPUC is evaluating a proposal that could include changes to baseline percentage and time of use rates.
Government offices and most public facilities will be closed today for the Labor Day holiday.
The closures will include administrative offices, courts and libraries. Curbside trash pickup will be delayed one day.
Parking meters in San Diego will not be enforced, according to the city.

Last season’s first-team all-league running back, Brandon Gansch, returned with a flourish as he rushed for 159 yards on 10 carries and scored 4 touchdowns on the night.
Gansch is running this season with an angel on his shoulder pads after his father’s death in a motorcycle accident this summer. James Gansch was a super fan not just of Brandon, but of all the Ramona players. As such, the team has chosen to honor James by wearing his initials on their helmets this season. Brandon seemed to score at will during the game.
