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.

History buff to share unusual stories about presidential elections

Since 1779 there have been 57 presidential elections.

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.
