Human trafficking: A San Diego County scourge

Human trafficking: A San Diego County scourge

Assemblymember Marie Waldron AD-75 (R) I am pleased to have coauthored Senate Concurrent Resolution 88 (SCR 88) which proclaims January 2016 as Human Trafficking Awareness Month. Human trafficking, a form of modern day slavery, has become increasingly prevalent, placing the United States in the top three world trafficking destinations. Unfortunately, San Diego’s involvement in this […]

Traps are cruel devices

Today as I was hiking with my dogs I noticed something strange in a grassy field. There were chains of some sort on top of holes in the ground. I was curious so I pulled up one of them and found a cute little furry animal with its leg caught in a steel trap! I […]

The Marine Corps must continue to build

Rep. Duncan Hunter says Ray Mabus, Navy Secretary who issued the order to blend women into all combat roles in the Marine Corps training programs, is wrong! The corps has proven extremely effective since involving women during WWII and women have played well in the more limited jobs they have performed since that era. I […]

More water storage capacity is a must

More water storage capacity is a must

Assemblymember Marie Waldron AD-75 (R) We are all hoping the current El Niño will bring an end to the drought. Whether or not, we’ll continue to receive normal or above-normal precipitation is still a question, though an end to the drought may be unlikely this year. Whatever the outcome this year, future droughts are certain. In 2014, […]

Trails must be preserved for future

The “jewel” of Fallbrook (a.k.a. Santa Margarita River Valley) is threatened by people who may wish to refuse public use of this land. Unless the Fallbrook Public Utilities District includes the wording on the deed to grant continued public access, we who enjoy the serenity of these trails may loose them. That would be a […]

Please help secure our trails

I moved to Fallbrook in 1969 with my parents. I was able to finally own a horse and I used to ride the hills in De Luz as well as across town. It was sheer joy! Leaving Fallbrook for a short while after I was married, I returned in 1988 to raise my family. My […]

“Refugees” include invaders

Groups of men, ages 17 to 25, from Palestine and Syria, cross into Bulgaria and from there move into the rest of the EU. A former Al Qaeda double agent told the BBC that he knew of two Egyptian brothers who reached Italy from Libya, accompanied by men who were “deeply religious and fluent in […]

It’s a busy January in Sacramento

It’s a busy January in Sacramento

Assemblymember Marie Waldron AD-75 (R) January is always a busy time in Sacramento, especially at the start of the second year of a two-year session. In addition to hundreds of new bills that are being introduced now, any bill carried over from last year must be approved in its respective house by the end of […]

Evaluating the candidates for President

To select your candidate for President, put together your list of criteria or concerns and give each candidate a grade from A to F for each, then see which come close even to a C average. Here are my criteria: experience in or with the Armed Forces (they all fail here – not a veteran […]

An opportunity to challenge SDG&E’s monopoly

Businesses, schools, and residents of the greater Fallbrook area are paying too much on their monthly SDG&E electric bills. With solar costs decreasing, we are locked into paying a share of unnecessary new construction of billion-dollar fossil fuel plants. In addition to these expenses, SDG&E is phasing in a new two tier structure to compel […]
