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.
I am writing in response to the story on Thursday, 1/24/13, regarding the teachers union.
I would like remind the school board, the community and particularly the teachers union that teachers have absolutely no reasons to complain about anything — particularly pay and compensation.
Teachers get paid (pretty darn well, too) to work less than eight months out of the year. They get nearly three months off during the summer. This past holiday break they got two weeks off, they got a week off at
OK, so the Ramona Sentinel publishes a reader’s opinion, “A Modest Proposal for Ramona Unified School District & Citizens of Ramona.”
This premise of imaginary social malaise is such a misdirected and unhelpful perspective about the future of Ramona’s educational system. Are the current financial, labor, and physical conditions of our schools a joke to you? Yes, the commentary briefly addresses the flagrant, reckless, and possible fraudulent behavior of a
Our Secretary of Defense has decided to allow women in combat roles. This will translate directly to requiring women to register with the selective service for a possible draft notice into the armed forces. This is due to a Supreme Court decision in 1981, Rostker v. Goldberg. This article talks about it: csmonitor.com/USA/Military/2013/0123/Women-in-combat-Will-they-have-to-register-for-the-draft. Please contact [...]
