You won’t see us at half-time on the football field or advertising for music and dance concerts. The visual arts are the quiet arts. In addition to the responsibilities of teaching, an art teacher must creatively stretch supplies and keep them from growing legs and filtering out of the classroom.
We’ve just celebrated another great Memorial Day in Ramona. It began with the well-attended VFW-sponsored Memorial Day Program at the Nuevo cemetery where more than 500 flags marked graces of the veterans there.
The program was to honor all veterans and especially those who gave their lives so we could enjoy the freedom we
The question becomes how do we bridge that achievement gap? There seems to be some schools, teachers and principals throughout the land that do bridge the gap better than others. Ah! Here-in lies the rub — outstanding bright teachers who have teaching in their DNA.
The 6th Annual Music Fest was a huge success in no small part to the volunteers and club members who worked so hard to put it on. To each and every one of them, I thank you.
The wrestling team from Ramona High School, your labor to haul the tables and chairs from the trailers to each of
Planned funding cuts to California’s nearly 100 hospital-based skilled-nursing facilities, including Palomar Health, will leave many patients and their families without the critical long-term and short-term rehabilitative care they need.
Drastic budget cuts will force facilities to reduce services and staffing, turn away new patients, and close. Communities served by these facilities would be harmed beyond repair.
This was sent to the Ramona Unified School District Board members and superintendent.
I am a parent with children in specialized academic programs at Barnett Elementary School and James Dukes Elementary School. I have been observing the proceedings between the Ramona school board and Ramona Teachers Association. In the event of a strike by teachers, the increased
The unsung heroes of Ramona are members of the Senior Volunteer Patrol.
A few years ago, a friend of mine, Dave Patterson, made a suggestion, since I am a senior living alone, that I contact the Senior Patrol. That was one of the best decisions that I ever made.
On March 30, Dr. Wayne Iverson, a San Diego physician, tea party leader and member of Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) who strongly oppose the Democrats’ so-called “Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act” (aka Obamacare), presented an informational program at Ramona Mainstage to over 150 concerned citizens, revealing the sobering truth about Obamacare.
I moved to Casner off the 78 six years ago. Access to SR-78 is a problem daily for me, traffic coming westbound. Drivers exceed the speed limit and have yelled, cussed and given me nice gestures more than once a week.
God help me if I’m with my husband in the stock trailer when we turn onto Casner if coming from Julian. I’ve seen motorcyclists hit other trailers that have made an attempt to turn on Casner.
I called a jean company and complained that my five pairs of jeans, all marked as the same size and style, were all different waist sizes. They could only tell me to take them to where I bought them and the store would give me another pair.
I went to Sears and they did indeed offer me a new pair, but they could not answer my question, why all the different waist sizes. Finally an experienced clerk came by and told me that it depended on what country they were made in. Same markings, different sizes. I checked and found that they were made in several different countries, none of them the United States.
