A soccer feud continues between two groups in Ramona with one filing a legal complaint against the other.
In November 2012, a group of parents split from Ramona Soccer League (RSL) to form Ramona Futbol Club (RFC) to create a higher level of competitive play and coaching. Since the split, which group should retain certain soccer equipment and portable lights has been in dispute.

Since 1779 there have been 57 presidential elections. Many have yielded interesting and amazing stories, and Michael Harrison, deputy district chief for Congressman Duncan Hunter, will present some of these unusual facts when he speaks to the Ramona Pioneer Historical Society at its potluck dinner Feb. 18 at 6:30 p.m.
The public is invited. The get-together will be in the Barnett Barn on the grounds of the Guy B. Woodward Museum, 645 Main St.
Those attending are asked to bring a salad, main dish or dessert to serve eight.
Harrison’s avocation is history, especially the history of the country and government. A Ramona resident, Harrison has worked in Washington, D.C., first for Hunter’s father and now for the Congressman.
The museum, featuring the 1886 Verlaque House, is open Thursday and Friday from 1 to 3 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m.
