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.
I’ve been a resident of Ramona my entire life. My family began on Ash Street and has over the years taken different residences in the San Diego Country Estates.
I’ve loved every moment of growing up here, from exploring the back hills of the Tennis Villas (before they were Barona Mesa) to wandering the trails of Cedar Creek and Black Canyon. I met my husband in Black Canyon, and have since raised two of our own children here, alongside his family as well.
FreeSTUFF or FreeDOM? Darrell Beck’s guest editorial was right on the mark, very well-written and unfortunately all too true. Indeed, he’s right. The federal “liberal” government appears to have built an unstoppable coalition of single-issue voters (gay rights, abortionists, illegal immigrants, and those who vote only “color”), plus the near majority of all those who [...]
No sooner had the last fires gone out and the smoke blown away after the Witch Creek Fire in 2007 than my wife and I got a call from our neighbor asking if we wanted to talk with other property owners about fire protection.
Unprecedented fires had devastated Ramona twice in four years. These weren’t 50-year or 100-year fires anymore. They could come any time.
We would like to congratulate the Ramona varsity girls water polo team for their hard-earned CIF Championship win against Valhalla last Saturday night. This team is the first water polo team for boys or girls to have ever made it to the CIF Finals and win CIF Finals.
We would also like to congratulate Coach Donnie Williams for his first CIF win and for all of the hard work he has put into the Ramona water polo program. Three-year varsity players Jocelyn Schwegler, Cassie Bernas, Paulina Bernd, and Holly Smith have all been playing for Coach William
Physician will match proposed donation
Dr. Graeff, I work very hard for the money I earn as a physician in Ramona, and have lowered fees more than 50 percent for my Ramona patients in financial need over the last five years.
I respectfully challenge you to donate $1,500 per month (ie. $18,000 per year) back to Ramona Unified School District (through a designated non-profit 501c3) while you are in office as superintendent, and I will gladly match your donation to RUSD for up to the next three years.
Good reason to incorporate
This letter was sent to each of the five San Diego County supervisors.
Last supervisors meeting, four of you voted in favor of the solar major use permit and Dianne Jacob voted against this intrusion into our rural Ramona.
A district is only as good as its teachers.
Ramona Unified proposes one solution to its debt problems — decreasing teachers’ salaries 8% this year and 9.5% for the next two. The superintendent and majority of board members refuse to explore other avenues of revenue — reducing stipends, early retirement incentives, reevaluation of superintendent’s compensation — or any of a host of teachers’ suggestions. RUSD said it “has no interest” in putting another bond before voters in negotiations, though they state otherwise in the UT.
