San Diego County artist Bob Teague is busy working in his studio on the latest mural for the Ramona H.E.A.R.T. Mural Project, one sponsored by the Ramona Chamber of Commerce.

Teague is carefully replicating the Shidner painting with the approval of her trustees, said Elaine Lyttleton, Ramona H.E.A.R.T. Mural Project president.
The completion and installation is hoped to be achieved in the next few weeks, said Lyttleton.

In his first awards banquet address as Ramona Chamber of Commerce executive director, Dr. Robert Argelan recognized the willingness of Ramona’s volunteers “to give of time, thought and money,” demonstrating an understanding of the importance of being involved “and how that involvement plays a keen role in the evolution of our community” as the Heart of San Diego County.
The event, held in San Vicente Resort Sunday evening, culminated in announcements of Ramona’s 2013 award winners: Jewelry World & Loan as Business of the Year, attorney Robert Krysak as Citizen of the Year, Cornerstone Therapeutic Riding Center as Non-Profit of the Year, and 9-year-old Alexavia Zetterberg as Special Recognition Award recipient.

San Diego County Board of Supervisors tentatively agreed to amend the county’s zoning ordinance and sections of the county code to allow community and special event signs and banners along county rights of way in unincorporated areas.
The flags currently are banned, but community groups have been asking for the prohibition to be repealed so they can promote their neighborhoods.
