Ramsey retired? This is no bueno!

Shocking! Shocking is all I have to say. There’ll be great wailing, hand wringing and gnashing of teeth in Fallbrook forthwith. Fallbrook and the Village News will have a large set of shoes to fill in order to replace (managing editor) Debbie Ramsey. She had the pulse of this village and the insight to know […]
