Water for Tribal Lands

Assemblymember Marie Waldron AD-75 (R) Indian Tribes in our arid region need access to reliable water to continue to live on reservation lands. This session, I jointly authored Assembly bill 1361 with Assemblymember Eduardo Garcia (D – Coachella) , to streamline water deliveries to Indian reservations throughout California. The bill allows water districts to enter into voluntary agreements […]


The name of the writer of the letter “Be careful when using Pyrex” [Village News, 10/5/17] was inadvertently left off her submission. Margie Haugh is the writer and Village News apologizes for the error.

Heads up FPUD customers

Fellow Fallbrook Public Utility District customers, hopefully you have read the eight page FPUD rate proposal letter by now. Their letter indicates that by the beginning of 2022 our water bills will be at least 50 percent higher than current rates. At the end of the eighth page of their letter, it is stated that […]

Re: Speeding through Fallbrook

I am shocked to see many residents of our town speeding down our streets ever morning on their way to work. It’s amazing they even make it to work. Don’t they respect anything or anybody. I learned a long time ago that crime, including breaking the law, does not pay. I prefer to obey the […]

Be careful when using Pyrex

At 1:24 a.m. a loud crash came from the kitchen area. Nothing was evident – nothing dropped or fell to the floor – a mystery. Later that day, I opened a lower kitchen cupboard and glass fell everywhere, shards and small splinters. My Pyrex 9” x 13” glass baking dish had exploded on the shelf. […]

Hunter should put mouth into deep freeze

Duncan Hunter, the militaristic gasbag who represents Fallbrook’s 50th Congressional District, called for a “pre-emptive strike” on North Korea in a TV interview last week. If a guy punches you in a bar, it’s not a pre-emptive strike – it’s an attack, so Hunter is proposing that we start a war. This is the same […]
